BREAKING NEWS:During the de-escalation process underway violent face-off took place with the Chinese Army yesterday night with casualties. The loss of lives on the Indian side includes an officer and two soldiers. Senior military officials of the two sides are currently meeting.— Sudhir Chaudhary (@sudhirchaudhary) June 16, 2020
This announcement came after various defence journalists tweeted revealing the serious nature of the incident at Pangong Tso, while stopping short of going into exact details.
This development comes amid a long drawn standoff between the Indian and Chinese forces along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh. The face-off erupted as a result of Chinese escalation seeking to stop India from construction strategic infrastructure near the border. India has steadfastly refused to halt construction.
In recent days both the sides were locked in various high-level talks in a bid to resolve the issue.
The latest meetings came after the fifth meeting between Major-General rank officers of the two armies was held along the LAC last week. This meeting had taken place after the beginning of limited disengagement of the forces at Galwan Valley, Patrolling Point 15 and Hot Springs following a meeting between the commander of Leh based 14 Corps and Major General Liu Lin, commander of the People’s Liberation Army in the South Xinjiang region on 6 June.
Reports coming in that it was a stone pelting .... no guns fired. Let’s see how this evolves. Serious escalation, marks the first confrontational deaths on the border in decades. Stone pelting as you can see has deadly consequences, was bound to happen.. but 3 persons??? https://t.co/906YpNWnti— Abhijit Iyer-Mitra (@Iyervval) June 16, 2020
What lies behind the confidence of a globally cornered and hated China? Does it have more stuff like #Corona that it thinks it can unleash on the world if cornered further? The world needs to find out what this country has been upto and what is it that it's hiding.— Raj Shekhar Jha (@rajshekharTOI) June 16, 2020

NEW: Three American aircraft carriers are patrolling the Indo-Pacific waters, the first time in nearly three years. USS Theodore Roosevelt, USS Nimitz and USS Ronald Reagan are all operating with their strike groups.— Global: MilitaryInfo (@Global_Mil_Info) June 14, 2020
Based on what I know, Chinese side also suffered casualties in the Galwan Valley physical clash. I want to tell the Indian side, don’t be arrogant and misread China’s restraint as being weak. China doesn’t want to have a clash with India, but we don’t fear it.— Hu Xijin 胡锡进 (@HuXijin_GT) June 16, 2020
Pray for Our Brave Bhartiya Soldiers
Casualties sadly could increase in Ladakh. Still a very fluid situation since some soldiers are seriously injured. Waiting for more official updates.— Aditya Raj Kaul (@AdityaRajKaul) June 16, 2020
Our Brave India Soldiers Need your Prayers
11 Indian soldiers critically injured. In all likelihood our fatality count is going to rise. There seems to be rescue ops happening & confusion on the ground. I am only tweeting things I can confirm from 3 persons on the ground. No single source tweets. https://t.co/DWhqWyiAMt— Abhijit Iyer-Mitra (@Iyervval) June 16, 2020
All Indians Must take Pledge to #Boycott & #BAN All Made in China Products
cannot imagine how troops are keeping calm.
A Commanding Officer has been killed. While Brigs of both sides “talk” to “defuse”, cannot imagine how troops are keeping calm. Horrifying situation. Also, talks have happened at Colonel, Brigadier, Maj Gen & Lt Gen level over 40 days. Last night’s clash happened *despite* those.— Shiv Aroor (@ShivAroor) June 16, 2020

Interestingly, PLA provocation came at the eve of India joining UNSC as a non-permanent member, leaving Indian Army no choice but to retaliate.— slick (@slickenteur) June 16, 2020

Who says that our soldiers were 'shastrheen'? Only weapons can't defeat enemy. Courage, valour and patriotism are sometimes enough to make enemy lick the dust. Salute to our brave soldiers. #GalwanValleyFaceOff
