Injuries were reported on both sides as Chinese and Indian Army troops clashed by means of shoving and throwing rocks in the disputed border region of Jammu and Kashmir. The troops also hit each other with steal pipes and the butt stocks of their weapons.
A similar event occurred in July, when Indian troops confronted Chinese soldiers and construction workers that were building roads in territory not belonging to China. Although that previous event didn’t involve throwing potentially deadly rocks.
There is concern that the use of stones could signify an escalation that may lead to the eventual use of military weapons.
