BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – The Indian army announced on Tuesday that one officer and two soldiers were killed in clashes with Chinese army forces on the border between the two countries in the Ladakh region, noting that army officials are now attempting to deescalate the situation.

A statement issued by the Indian army stated that “during the ongoing de-escalation process in the village of Galwan, violent clashes erupted yesterday night, which resulted in casualties. The losses on the Indian side included the killing of an officer and two soldiers.”

The statement added that “officials from both sides are now meeting in the village of Galwan to calm the situation.”

Earlier, skirmishes occurred between the Chinese and Indian border guards, and as a result, for the first time, soldiers of the Indian army were arrested, and then they were released.

India and China pushed a number of reinforcement units to Ladakh to the de facto control line, following intense clashes in the disputed area on May 5th.

Despite attempts to resolve their issues peacefully, the two sides continue to engage in sporadic clashes along the Line of Actual Contact (LAC).
