Major media outlets reporting that we control the disputed area where the incident occured. Galwan Valley is ours China historically has not disputed this! Re the statement, I wished we had a more appropriate response from MEA, China IIRC never even mentioned "Peace and Tranquility" today...

More details:

No firing took place, so this means that our soldiers were beaten to death by the Chinese on Indian territory.

Oh man, this is heartbreaking.

Looks like Pakis are trying to plug the gaping holes in AD that the Vajra exploited.
They are lapping up all used Saab-2000 airframes and getting the radar fitted.
Pakis claiming that the new numbers are anywhere between 6-9 Erieye birds.
