Bad news came late at night on the Indian border. The Indian army suffered heavy losses without firing, and 3 soldiers have been casualties.
According to the People’s Daily Overseas Network report on December 26, late at night on the 25th local time, India was located in Jammu and KashmirA wall at a military camp on the border collapsed, causing many soldiers to be trapped. Two soldiers have died and one soldier was injured. This is not the first time such a problem has occurred in India. According to Indian media reports on December 21, an Indian military vehicle carrying Indian soldiers and civilians crashed into a canyon near the Sino-Indian border the day before, with three Indians on board. The soldier died on the spot.
There is a view that long-term, large-scale combat readiness , Is always testing the Indian army’s logistics support. And this dilemma is making the grassroots soldiers on the”front line” still miserable. According to the “Times of India” report on December 23, the Indian ITBP troops responsible for the confrontation with the People’s Liberation Army on the western section of the China-India border have applied to the Indian government to re-delegate them to perform domestic security tasks, so that they can perform tasks in high-altitude and low-temperature areas. Officers and soldiers of the Ministry can get”healthy rest” to prevent them from having various health problems.
According to an Indian military officer,”The Leh The altitude is very high and the amount of snowfall is very high. After November, the snowfall will reach 40 feet (about 12.2 meters). At the same time, (Leh area) the temperature drops to minus 30°C to 40°C is also common Phenomenon, and wind chill disease is even worse for the army.” In this case, if the logistics cannot be guaranteed, the army will not Both morale and combat effectiveness will be greatly tested. The most important thing is that the infrastructure cannot meet the needs of large-scale troops. In this kind of weather, it will only cause more and more non-combat losses.
Not only that, if the formation of troops will eventually get The Modi government agreed that operating costs will increase because the Indian army must establish camps on the”frontline” of 250-300 kilometers and provide The additional army reserves tens of thousands of tons of food and fuel, which will be needed for the three months beginning in January. The cost increase brought about by this will greatly reduce the army’s already negligible modernization expenditure, and may even eventually squeeze the budget of the other two services.
With regard to the Sino-Indian border issue, China has already responded many times . The spokesperson of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Hua Chunying, once stated that the merits of the incidents in the China-India border area are very clear, and the Indian side is solely responsible. China has always strictly abide by the agreements signed by China and India, is committed to resolving border issues through negotiation and consultation, and is committed to maintaining peace and tranquility in the border area. At the same time, China is determined to safeguard China’s territorial sovereignty. We hope that the Indian side will meet the Chinese side halfway and do more things conducive to unity, cooperation and common development.
