Following an outbreak of violence in June, tensions have continued in the contested border regions between India and China. Chinese state media reported last week that the PLA has commissioned new, modern barracks for soldiers and to station heavy artillery close to the disputed Sino-India border in the Ngari region of Tibet as part of its “preparations for war”. This appears to confirm satellite imagery released earlier this year which suggested massive construction activity near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ngari including for an aircraft base in Ngari prefecture.
