Indian soldiers early in the morning of 9/9 were patrolling along Pangong Lake when they encountered Chinese border guards, causing controversy and fighting to last until that day, when both sides were hospitalized. When troops arrived, unnamed military sources said.
Clashes broke out on the northern bank of the 134-kilometer-long Pangong Lake, dragging from Tibet to the Ladakh region, east of India, according to a military source. China controls two-thirds of this lake and its border is always opposed to the presence of Indian soldiers in the region.
