The Invasion of the Philippines, also called as the Chinese Invasion of the Philippines, Philippines Campaign of 1990, Sino-Philippine War, or the Filipino-Chinese War, was a limited invasion of the Philippines conducted by the People's Liberation Army Navy in order to distract U.S. Forces in South Korea and at home fighting the Soviets in Alaska and Washington. The invasion was done in a similar style like what the Chinese did in Vietnam in 1979.

In this campaign, the Chinese South Sea Fleet attacked and occupied several Philippine-claimed islands in the South China Sea. The next day, portions of the South Sea Fleet arrived off the coast of Zambales and mounted an amphibious assault of 5,000 troops. An aerial attack on U.S. bases in the country followed using captured Taiwanese air bases. While initially successful in causing some U.S. assets such as ships and aircraft, the Chinese soon suffered heavy losses from attacks by both Philippines and U.S. forces, as well as the Filipino citizens who poised a heavy resistance to the Chinese. The Chinese were able to occupy some towns and villages around Manila, but were never able to reach the capital. After a month of the invasion, it was deemed to costly as the Chinese prepared to retreat back to China. Over 4,000 Chinese troops were killed and the rest were captured as POWs.
