Last week, there was a short skirmish between Indian and Chinese forces near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Arunachal Pradesh.Following the altercation on December 9, the two sides “immediately retreated from the location” after “minor injuries to a few persons on both sides.”The incident occurred in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang Sector. In a “strong executive manner,” Indian soldiers tried to resist Chinese troops crossing the LAC.
Since the battles at Eastern Ladakh, there haven’t been any reports of similar engagements between Indian and Chinese forces.The worst of these fights broke out in Galwan Valley in June 2020, killing or injuring over 40 Chinese personnel and 20 Indian soldiers. The incident triggered a series of conflicts between the two countries, one of which occurred on the South Bank of Pangong Lake.Following extensive negotiations, Chinese and Indian soldiers withdrew from critical positions such as Gogra-Hot Springs in Ladakh.According to government sources, such incidents have been happening since 2006 as a consequence of “differing opinions” of the line.”There are spots of differing perception along the LAC in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang Sector, where both sides observe the region up to respective claim lines.” The pattern started in 2006, thus. On December 9, 2022, Chinese soldiers made touch with the LAC in the Tawang Sector, which was vigorously resisted by our troops “the sources stated.
In response to the event, the Indian commander in the region met with his Chinese counterpart under the banner of adhering to “organised methods to restore peace and quiet,” according to the authorities.Tensions can sometimes reach the point of clashes. However, both sides have been working to deescalate since a severe conflict in June 2020 in the Galwan Valley in the Ladakh area somewhat further to the west, in which 20 Indian soldiers and at least four Chinese soldiers were killed. It had been 45 years since the last fatal confrontation in the region between the two factions, which had been fought with sticks and clubs rather than weapons.
There were casualties on both sides of the conflict in January 2021. It happened in the Indian state of Sikkim, which borders both China and India, near the Bhutan-Nepal border.
In September, both countries began removing their soldiers from disputed territory along a remote border area in the western Himalayas.
