The first such flare-up along the border in more than a year has taken place between Indian and Chinese forces in a disputed area.
At least 24 troops were killed in a major clash in 2020, and the nations have been trying to deescalate tensions since then.
On Monday, however, the Indian army confirmed that a clash occurred in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang sector last Friday.
A few soldiers suffered minor injuries on both sides.
As of yet, China has not commented on the standoff. However, Reuters reported that at least six Indian troops were injured.
According to the Indian army, both sides immediately disengaged from the area.
Following the incident, commanders from both sides held a meeting “to restore peace and tranquility”.
There is a disputed de facto border between China and India – called the Line of Actual Control, or LAC – that is poorly delineated. Rivers, lakes, and snowcaps can cause the line to shift. At many points, the soldiers representing two of the world’s largest armies come face-to-face.
There are times when tensions escalate into skirmishes. Since a major battle in June 2020 in the Galwan Valley in the Ladakh region much further west, where 20 Indian soldiers and at least four Chinese soldiers died, both sides have been trying to de-escalate the conflict.
For 45 years, the two sides had not engaged in a fatal confrontation until then – with sticks and clubs, not guns.
There was also an injury on both sides in January 2021 as a result of a face-off between the two sides. This incident occurred along the border between China and Sikkim, a state sandwiched between Bhutan and Nepal.
Both countries began troop withdrawals from a disputed area along a remote western Himalayan border area in September.
