The Indian Army Monitors The Concentration Of Chinese Troops In Ladakh

India is closely monitoring the concentration of Chinese troops in strategically important areas on the line of effective control in Eastern Ladakh, according to The Hindu, citing Indian military sources.

"The Indian army has deployed additional troops and weapons in the region to prevent further Chinese incursions into Indian territory in the strategically important Depsang Bulj area," the newspaper quoted sources as saying. Three Indian infantry divisions of 10-12 thousand troops each, as well as tanks and artillery, have been deployed to the border with China in the East of Ladakh. Indian air force fighter jets perform regular patrol flights over Ladakh."

According to Indian data, the people's liberation army of China has also deployed a military group consisting of motorized rifle and mechanized divisions along the line of effective control in Ladakh. Chinese soldiers are building a new fortified camp and observation posts in the Galvan river valley on the unmarked border with India, where soldiers from the two countries clashed in June.
