Video Emerges Showing Clashes Between Indian, Chinese Soldiers

Late last week, we reported that in the first documented clash between Chinese and Indian soldiers who have been piling up across the border between the two nations over the latest territorial dispute, “Indian and Chinese soldiers were involved in an altercation” in the western Himalayas on Tuesday, “further raising tensions between the two countries which are already locked in a two-month standoff in another part of the disputed border.” A Reuters source in New Delhi who was briefed on the military situation on the border, said Indian soldiers “foiled a bid by a group of Chinese troops to enter Indian territory in Ladakh, near the Pangong lake.” He added that some of the Chinese soldiers carried iron rods and stones, and in the melee there were minor injuries on both sides.

“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.

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.

    1-0 India, although maybe all new wars should be fought like this in preparation for world war 5 looking forward to the rematch

      Scoreless draw.

  • Serious

    If there is a war China vs India, no way India can win.

    • John Brown

      India and China will both lose if they go to war, only racist supremacist Israel will win.

  • Simon Abruzzo

    BRICS shouldn’t fight among themselves.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      brics is buillshit. this is no organization, no alliance. some hipster journalist temporarely called several countries in that way. thats all.

    • paulgilpin

      that’s what we always get at ZH. one day BRICS is moving ahead, the next day china is going tits up.

  • PZIVJ

    Perhaps this was just a cross border Rugby match that got out of hand? :D

  • grumpy_carpenter

    That’s not a military conflict ….. it’s a bar fight. Could be any Saturday night around here. What do you expect when you got a couple of hundred young men housed in barracks on either side in an isolated region and no women and lots of alcohol ….. boys will be boys.

  • Solomon Krupacek

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    Those godless-Atheist genocided millions of good-Chinese just 40 years ago and are erasing the Tibetan people.
    The people of India are most noble and fought with the good guys in WW2.
    I hope India enlist the help of Hezbollah to help train civilian militias to resists the Imperial-Chinese-Empire’s expansions.
    The UK and USSA and China and France are the global forces of Atheist which attack only Monotheist such as Afghanistan and Palestine and Syria and India and Iran and so forth.
    All Monotheist must UNITE against Atheist.

      what do you smoke?

      Instead of China, put Zionist Israel. Makes a shitload more sense.

  • paulgilpin

    india sees this as an attempt by china to isolate india from her eastern provinces. this could be done by taking possession of the “chicken neck”. the narrow path between nepal and bangladesh. india sees the chinese action as a land based version of the island manufacturing going on in the south china sea.

    india must have been on to something earlier not to send an official representative to the BRICS meeting. given the current political climate, about all i see left is RC. the B and S don’t have an economy. I does, but i don’t think they are going to be much of a partner.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      RC is also only myth. china never forgot, how betryed them russians in the 19th century and took from them central asia and far east. if they will be enough strong, will want everything back. in central asia already now we cen see the enormous rising of chinese influebce. russia has only one chance: to get closer to western civilisation.

      @paulgilpin, this is what India wants everyone to think. With or without the roads being build in the Doklam area bordering Sikkim and Bhutan, China can always air drop their soldiers on to the Chicken Neck area if war breaks out. The truth is, Indians are afraid of Bhutan will be having direct China contacts with this new road being build. With new roads from China into Bhutan, Bhutan will have alternatives to get out of the land lock states and become less reliance to India; and thus, it will become harder for India to control Bhutan and no hope of eventual annexation.
