New satellite images have reaffirmed India’s strategic deployment in Pangong Tso, Spanggur Tso area along the Line of Actual Control (LAC). The images were shared by OSINT analyst “d-atis” on Twitter.
Last year in August, Vikas Battalion, India’s Special Frontier Force (SFF) unit, under the cover of darkness outfoxed the PLA by occupying 13 critical heights and mountain passes along the South Bank of the Pangong Tso – a glacial lake at 16,000 ft.
The SFF is a special force comprising Tibetan refugees which was raised after the India-China war of 1962
Strategic deployment in Pangong Tso, Spanggur Tso
“Throughout the #IndiaChinaStandOff, the silence of #India’s political leadership enabled many to create havoc & panic, however images tactfully released at the end of 2020 when geolocated re-affirm Indian strategic deployments in #PangongTso & #SpanggurTso,” d-atis tweeted.
China has also deployed troops just a few metres away from the Indian position on the heights.
