Share with Your Friends

Recently, there was a clash between Indian and Chinese soldiers in the ‘no-patrolling zone’ of Galwan valley in eastern Ladakh.

Background:

  • It is to be known that there was an encounter between China and Indian soldiers on 15 June 2020, in which 20 soldiers of the Indian Army were martyred.
  • Since this incident, a zone of about 1.5 km on either side of the encounter site near the Y-junction of Galwan Valley, a zone of up to a total distance of 3 km, was declared a ‘no-patrolling zone’. After this, a 30-day break was also implemented on ‘foot patrol’ in this area.

Galwan river valley

  • The Galwan Valley is located near the Indo-China border between Ladakh and Aksai Chin. The Line of Actual Control (LAC) in this region divides Aksai Chin from India.
  • It originates near Samzungling, the caravan campsite on the eastern side of the Karakoram Range and flows west to join the Shyok River.
  • The Galvan Valley is strategically located between Ladakh in the west and Aksai Chin in the east. At its western end lies the Shyok River, and the ‘Darbuk–Shyok–DBO Road’ (DSDBO).
