BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – The Pakistani Army allegedly deployed 20,000 to their disputed border with India amid increased tensions between New Delhi and Beijing.

According to reports, the Pakistani military moved two divisions of troops along the Line of Control on its side of Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan, the area that adjoins Ladakh on the north.

The development is being seen by Indian intelligence as part of Pakistan’s efforts to open up a two-front war with India, Sputnik reported.

Indian news website The Economic Times has quoted sources as saying that Chinese officials are holding talks with cadres of terror outfit Al Badr to incite violence in Jammu and Kashmir. Radars on the Pakistan-side are reportedly fully activated and on high alert.

The rise in Chinese air activity near to eastern Ladakh has raised the possibility of the Pakistan Air Force using airbases in Gilgit-Baltistan.

While India is holding talks with China on the disengagement of troops along the 4,057km Line of Actual Control, satellite images have shown a rise in troop deployments and armoured vehicles on both sides of the border.

The development comes just weeks after India and China engaged in violent clashes in Ladakh that left 20 Indian soldiers dead.
