BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The Indian army mass deployed troops to the Ladakh region this week after one of the deadliest battles with the Chinese military since the 1967 conflict.
According to reports, the Indian army deployed these troops to the Ladakh region amid a large-scale military exercise by the Chinese forces near the disputed border.
A video posted by RT on Wednesday showed a large number of Indian troops heading to the Ladakh region, despite claims by both Beijing and New Delhi about deescalating the tensions along the border.
On Monday, the Indian and Chinese armies clashed along the disputed border region, resulting in several casualties, including 20 killed on the Indian side.
The Chinese Ministry of Defense has yet to confirm their losses; however, the New Delhi-based Ani News Agency alleged that more than 40 Chinese soldiers were killed.
