As reports emerge of Indian Army occupying strategic heights to dominate South Bank of Pangong Tso, China threatens retaliation

According to information received by ANI from unnamed sources, a special operations team occupied the heights on the particular night. The Chinese troops were barely a few hundred metres away from the said heights.

The Indian Army announced on Monday that on the intervening night between the 29th and 30th of August, the Chinese PLA “carried out provocative military movements to change the status quo” but the Indian Armed Forces personnel thwarted their nefarious intentions by pre-empting their movements on the Southern Bank of the Pangong Tso lake and strengthening their positions to stop the unilateral Chinese expansionism.

Now, more details are emerging regarding the events of the particular night. National Security Analyst Nitin Gokhale said that the Indian Army had noticed suspicious PLA movements in response to which they moved to occupy “unheld features along LAC to dominate” the South Bank of Pangong Tso. He said that Indian troops had not breached the LAC.

Vishnu Som of NDTV also said that the Indian Army has occupied the heights in response to Chinese aggression while discussions were on to resolve the conflict. According to Som, “the ball is now in China’s court”.

According to information received by ANI from unnamed sources, a special operations team occupied the heights on the particular night. The Chinese troops were barely a few hundred metres away from the said heights. The height is claimed to be south of South Bank near Thakung. The height is on the Indian side of the LAC, however, China claims it is on their side as well.

Hu Xijin, the Editor-in-Chief of the Global Times (Chinese state media), claimed on social media that Indian troops “again pulled a stunt at border”. Maintaining the pompous sense of bravado that has become the hallmark of Chinese communication in recent times, he said, “Don’t misjudge the situation anymore. If there is a conflict in Pangong Lake, it will only end in new defeat of Indian army.”

In a separate tweet, Hu Xijin said that the south bank of the Pangong Tso lake is under the actual control of China. The PLA statement on the matter claimed that Indian troops ‘illegally crossed’ the KAC at South Bank and ‘seriously violated China’s sovereignty’. The statement also threatens retaliation.

The recent clashes indicate that the issue at the LAC in Ladakh is far from being resolved. While discussions are underway to resolve the dispute, China appears to be adamant on altering the status quo. However, consensus appears to be emerging that in the fresh clashes, India has made some decisive gains in the conflict.
