China Escalates Border Conflict With India by Deploying 3 Battalions Near LAC
The ongoing border conflict between India and China intensified after the Chinese army started deploying its troops in large numbers near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh. On Monday, the Indian Army successfully opposed the invasion of People’s Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers in Mukhri, Chushul.
Going by this, defence experts expect more such attempts by the Chinese army in the coming days, especially when the number of deployed troops is increasing day by day.
China had deployed one battalion of the PLA Ground Force at Rechin La near LAC on September 1. Now, two more battalions along the Spangur lake have been deployed by China. These battalions are part of the 62 Combined Arms Brigade, which is currently present at Shikwan.
On August 29-30, the Indian Army had successfully captured Rechin La and Rezang La in the conflicted region. These two peak regions are crucial as the army can now keep an eye on the movement of Moldo Cantonment of China.
With more soldiers’ deployment, the PLA is now looking to re-occupy the possession of these strategically important locations.
Meanwhile, two motorized divisions have also been deployed in Ladakh. While the 4th Motorized Division of China is deployed near Chushul, the 6th Motorized Division has taken its position in the west side of Pangong towards Daulat Beg Oldi.
