Video emerges showing clashes between Indian and Chinese soldiers (Video)

The clashes took place at Ladakh, near the Pangong lake.

Reuters is reporting that Indian and Chinese soldiers were involved in an altercation in the western Himalayas on Tuesday, according to Indian sources.

Video capturing the altercation between the two countries shows tensions rising in what is already a two-month standoff in another part of the disputed border.

A source in New Delhi, who had been briefed on the military situation on the border, said soldiers foiled a bid by a group of Chinese troops to enter Indian territory in Ladakh, near the Pangong lake.

Some of the Chinese soldiers carried iron rods and stones, and in the melee there were minor injuries on both sides, the source said.

China’s defense and foreign ministries did not immediately respond to request for comment.

The two sides have frequently accused each other of intrusions into each other’s territories, but clashes are rare.

According to Reuters, the Indian military declined to comment on the incident.

“There was an altercation near the Pangong lake,” said a police officer in Srinagar, the capital of India’s Jammu and Kashmir state, under which the area falls. An army source in Srinagar, quoted by Reuters, spoke of an altercation following what he called a Chinese army “incursion in Pangong lake area”. This fresh standoff at Pangong Tso lake in Ladakh comes in the backdrop of tensions between Indian and Chinese troops over Doklam plateau in Sikkim sector with the PLA skipping the ceremonial border meetings on Independence Day.

Zerohedge reports

What is notable about this concerning breakout of violence, is how silent both India and China have been, with neither side issuing an official statement confirming or denying last week’s events.

Overnight, thanks to India’s NDTV, five days after the “unconfirmed” scuffle in Ladakh, a video of the clash has surfaced. The video, which has been widely circulated on social media, shows many soldiers from the two countries punching and kicking each other and throwing stones.

This is unacceptable behaviour by both sides. They BOTH need to get some discipline and very senior authority up there immediately. I thought the rhetoric war between Trump/US and NK was bad enough. But that was a verbal fight between a spoilt teenage bully (US) and a child whose whole policy for years has been to demand attention by acting crazy (NK). It was calmed down when an adult stepped in. This squabble is between two adults. China is definitely an adult (ironically as it showed over NK just last week !), India…maybe too…it certainly claims to be one. Perhaps… Read more »

Yes, that started as hand to hand combat with China at a 10 to 1 ratio, and yet they still received a beat down from Soviet Troops.

Communist Chinese Soldiers were natives that were kicked out by the Soviet Union Troops in border skirmishes in the 1970’s. Thanks, that is new info for everybody:)

I can be any one from east Europe, central Asia to far east… I hope you sleep well that all of us want one day will get our land back…

Let me see, you are one of those Russian transplant and brought land from eastern Europe, central Asia, to far east to mother Russia. Can not stop remind people how brutal Russian can be to anyone or every one. Russia is no difference compare to Japan and refuse to acknowledge their sin, and worse that the west refusing to return stolen land.
