*A "lethal confrontation" is a direct clash between Japanese and Chinese national military forces that produces at least 1 death total from either side. "Between national military forces from China and Japan" means that the clash in question must involve official military members of both states' armed forces, to include coast guards. "National military forces" refers to some recognized subset of a nation's (or multinational coalition's) official military. This definition of "national military" excludes quasi-military or paramilitary groups, such as insurgents, mercenaries, guerrillas, rebels, independent militias, or terrorist actors. Outcome resolution will be determined by the administrator using open sources, such as Reuters, BBC, Associated Press, or question-specific sources (e.g., Freedom House, United Nations Security Council Website). If nothing is reported in these sources, then the "status quo" outcome (no significant lethal confrontation) will be assumed. In cases of substantial controversy or uncertainty, Administrator may refer the question to outside subject matter experts, or we may deem the question invalid/void. "Before" should be interpreted to mean at or prior to the end (23:59:59 ET) of the previous day.
