Indian Intelligence: China Establishes New Military District Near Ladakh's Contact Line

12

China is not going to withdraw its troops from the demarcation line with India in East Ladakh, but on the contrary is creating a new military infrastructure in this area.


According to Indian military intelligence, the Chinese army is creating a new military area in East Ladakh, concentrating significant forces there. In addition to deploying additional modular townships to accommodate PLA troops, China has built several airstrips and jump-off helipads along the demarcation line.

The new townships are reportedly deployed at eight forward locations along a line from the Karakorum Pass in the north to the Piue and Chang-La districts in the south. In addition, China has upgraded several nearby air bases to accommodate additional combat and bomber aviation in case of military clashes with India. We are talking about air bases in the regions of Kashgar, Lhasa, Shigatse and a number of others.

Also, Indian intelligence draws attention to the fact that two batteries of S-400 air defense systems, purchased from Russia, are deployed near East Ladakh. Covering the airspace with this system speaks of the seriousness of China's intentions, India believes. No withdrawal of troops from the line of actual control can be expected in the near future, the Indian Ministry of Defense says.

Recall that in the Ladakh region there is a high-mountainous lake Pangong-Tso with a length of 135 km, just located on the Line of Actual Control between China and India. After the 1962 war, it was divided into three parts: Indian, Chinese and Tibetan, and there are constant clashes between Indian and Chinese military personnel. The situation became especially tense last year after a series of clashes. At the present time, the parties are seeking to withdraw forces and means from each other, but they are not making concessions.

    India has no S-400. There is nothing to unfold. But the films are good.

      It is necessary to see if among the elements of combat training such as blocking an ax or a saber with a bare hand; beating the crotch with a boot or grabbing the tip of the enemy spear with the buttocks. If there is something like that, then we can safely assume that the Japanese are sly Chinese in disguise.

      Why do they need Japanese instructors if they have their own masters?

      Yes, otherwise they would not have fought with sticks. Russia forces them all to march on the same site.

    But what did they want, uniting in fact against China with the United States ?! There will be a collapse of the dollar system, there will be a redrawing of the world and spheres of influence. Everyone is now uniting. True, these blocs did not help Poland and Czechoslovakia at the time, but that is so ...
