China attack on Indian border: Soldiers beat each other with sticks Politics

They are the world’s two largest armed forces: China and India together have more than 3.5 million combat-ready soldiers, nearly 500 nuclear weapons and about ten thousand tanks.

In the Himalayas, there is a renewed clash between the soldiers of the two sides on the India-China border. But instead of using heavy weapons, the soldiers attacked each other with bamboo sticks!

Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh announced on Tuesday that soldiers from both sides had been injured. The incident took place in the northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh on Friday.

Indian Minister Singh alleged that Chinese soldiers are invading the area around the border in Dawang district. The Indian Army successfully pushed back the invaders.

Cause of conflict: China claims India’s Arunachal Pradesh as its own. Incidents along the border have been recurring, most recently in June 2020, during which 20 Indian and four Chinese soldiers were killed in clashes. They attacked each other with fists, sticks and stones.

Because: In order to prevent war, soldiers in the area usually refrain from using guns. Likewise on Friday. Renowned political scientist Carlo Masala (54, Bundeswehr University) shared a video of the incident on Twitter. On both sides, screaming warriors can be seen fighting with sticks. During the battle, Indian soldiers repulsed the Chinese attackers.

After the 2020 incident, the Chinese and Indian armies each deployed thousands of soldiers along the border. After complicated negotiations, signs initially pointed to an easing in early 2021: at that point, countries agreed to withdraw some of their troops. Last September, China and India withdrew more troops. In 1962, the nuclear powers fought a short but fierce border war.
