IAF patrols Arunachal skies to prevent violation by Chinese

New Delhi, December 13, 2022

After tension erupted between the Indian Army and the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) in Arunachal Pradesh, Indian Air Force (IAF) jets were patrolling the skies of Arunachal Pradesh.

The purpose of the patrolling was to prevent the Chinese Army from violating the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

IAF sources added that the patrolling was being done to prevent air space violations by the Chinese Air Force.

The sources also said that the multiple fighter aircraft were flying near the LAC.

The clash between the Indian Army and Chinese PLA on the 17,000-ft high peak in Arunachal Pradesh took place on December 9. China has been repeatedly trying to take control of the peak. Sources in the Indian Army said that India has a firm control on the peak.

This peak provides a commanding view on both sides of the border, the sources said.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh held a high-level meeting with the National Security Adviser, the Army chief and the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) on Tuesday morning.

At ground zero, the commanders of both Indian and Chinese armies held a flag meeting to restore normalcy.
