It marks the 37th day this year that Chinese government ships intruded upon Japanese territorial waters.
The Haijing 2166, the Haijing 2102, the Haijing 2350 and the Haijing 1126 were spotted near the islands between 7:25 a.m. and 7:45 a.m., according to the 11th Regional Coast Guard Headquarters in Naha.
The Haijing 2166 and the Haijing 2102 crossed into Japanese waters off Uotsurijima, one of the five uninhabited islands, while the Haijing 2350 and the Haijing 1126 entered Japanese waters off Kubajima, another island in the Senkaku chain, according to the headquarters.

Comment: They've only intruded into Japanese sovereign territorial waters 37 days (this year) but, they've been circling the islands just outside the boundaries like sharks waiting for the kill for the first 223 days of this year. FYI, August 11th is the 223rd day of 2013....
