Indian and Chinese border patrols typically do not carry firearms in their disputed border zones, under mutually agreed protocols intended to prevent an inadvertent escalation of violence. Indian and Chinese Soldiers killed
But troops have engaged in hand-to-hand combat at several locations along the disputed border in recent weeks. Indian official said the previous clashes had resulted in a number of injuries to its troops.

Trump will have to speak up for the sake of the upcoming elections. Indian and Chinese Soldiers killed
