300 Chinese troops clash with Indian troops at Tawang. Injuries reported on both sides


Tawang again became a flashpoint between India and China as around 300 Chinese soldiers tried to capture a key mountain peak in the Yangtse area of Arunachal Pradesh. The Indian Army revealed that on 9 December 300 PLA soldiers came prepared to take over a mountain peak in the disputed border. However, the Indian Army had prior intelligence and was equally prepared to counter a Chinese attack.

A face-off occurred leading some Indian and Chinese soldiers have been reported to have gotten injured. Indian Army released a statement stating that the Indian troops contested the Chinese in “a firm and resolute manner.”

A Flag meeting was held following which both sides immediately disengaged.

India and China faced off earlier too at the long-disputed Tawang region near the Tibetan border. India has long maintained that the region is part of its territory, while China has claimed the area to be part of south Tibet and hence a part of China.
