'Unarmed' Ladakh shepherds confront & push back Chinese Soldiers from LAC; Video Viral -

In a major development, Chinese Soldiers were confronted and pushed back by a group of Ladakh shepherds near the Line of Actual Control (LAC). The undated video is going viral on social media and reports suggest that a few Chinese Army soldiers tried to stop a group of Ladakh shepherds from grazing their sheep near the Line of Actual Control (LAC). However, the unarmed shepherds bravely confronted the Chinese PLA troops and pushed them back instead. Local shepherds had stopped grazing animals in this area following the 2020 Galwan clash. A video of them arguing with PLA troops and asserting that they were on Indian territory has won hearts on social media. 

 

In the viral Ladakh graziers Chinese army video, the shepherds can be seen confronting Xi Jinping's soldiers. Also, one of the shepherds were seen recording a video of their confrontation with the Chinese Army. As per reports, over the past three years, nomads in eastern Ladakh had stopped grazing animals in several areas near the LAC. This is the first time they have asserted their grazing rights in the area and forced PLA soldiers to retreat.

 

Notably, a few days back, another video went viral on social media which showcased Indian Army Jawans stopping and warning the Chinese Army soldiers who had entered Indian territory. 

 

Chushul councillor Konchok Stanzin lauded the resistance shown by the local shepherds and praised the Indian army for supporting them. "It is heartening to see the positive impact made by @firefurycorps_IA in Border areas of Eastern Ladakh in facilitating the graziers and nomads to assert their rights in traditional grazing grounds along the north bank of Pangong," he said in a post on X, adding, "I would like to thank #IndianArmy for such strong civil-military relations & looking after the interests of the border area population."

 

It is pertinent to mention here that India and China have been at loggerheads ever since the 2021 standoff. Beginning on 5 May 2020, Chinese and Indian troops engaged in aggressive melee, face-offs, and skirmishes at locations along the Sino-Indian border, including near the disputed Pangong Lake in Ladakh and the Tibet Autonomous Region, and near the border between Sikkim and the Tibet Autonomous Region. Additional clashes also took place at locations in eastern Ladakh along the Line of Actual Control (LAC). The standoff also witnessed the Galwan Valley-like incident.
