China deploys missile systems along Indian occupied Kashmir

The Chinese forces and their weapons are also now better acclimatized to the region than they were last year. As a response to all these developments, Indian forces have redirected significant military assets along the eastern Ladakh sector to counter any unexpected incursions along the border.

The tension between China and India is on the rise again. As the Chinese are deploying missile and rocket regiments opposite the Eastern Ladakh sector, the development has raised concern in the corridors of the Indian forces and government offices.

Even after 17 months of talks, the conflict between India and China has not seen its end, and the dialogues between the two countries have failed to produce any results. China is now seen deploying long-range missile and rocket regiments opposite the Easter Ladakh sector, reinforcing China’s border force as a deterrent to India.

The Chinese are also making new highways and airstrips to support the movement of troops in the region. The move is aimed at improving the supply routes for the forces posted along the border.

Prior to this, last year, a skirmish took place between the two countries in the Galwan valley region where troops from both sides engaged in a melee encounter, which resulted in casualties on both sides.

The event featured the deadliest Sino-Indian border clashes in forty years. The two sides agreed to simultaneously disengage from the region to avoid an armed confrontation between the troops. This was also the first time in 45 years that shots were fired along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

Line of Actual Control:

The Line of Actual Control is a line that separates the Indian-controlled region from the Chinese-controlled region. The line is different from the borders claimed by each side and thus sees incursions or claims of incursions from either side.

The series of bilateral talks between the two countries have failed to produce results and sees heavy investment from both sides to counter each other militarily. With Chinese forces investing heavily on military and road infrastructure in the region, they are believed to be set for heavy troop movement along the region.

The Chinese military is also seen holding military drills at night time and recruiting natives of the Tibetan region who understand the terrain a lot better than the mainlanders. This development raises concerns for the Indian forces as much of this development is apart from the main bases in Gunsa, Hotan, and Kashgar.

The Chinese forces and their weapons are also now better acclimatized to the region than they were last year. As a response to all these developments, Indian forces have redirected significant military assets along the eastern Ladakh sector to counter any unexpected incursions along the border.

India has also seen a considerable increase in troop deployment along the border and has invested heavily in infrastructure development to support troop activity.

This development is a threat to the stability in the region, especially because the two countries at arms with each other are nuclear-capable countries, and any sort of escalation risks the inadvertent strategic miscalculation.
