NEW DELHI, SEP 20 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 9/20/2020 12:30:07 PM IST

In the last three weeks, the Indian Army has occupied six new major hill features on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) during the ongoing conflict with the Chinese army in the Eastern Ladakh sector. “The Indian Army has occupied six new heights between August 29 and the second week of September. The new hill features being occupied by our troops include the Magar hill, Gurung Hill, Recehen La, Rezang La, Mokhpari and the dominating height over Chinese positions near Finger 4,” top government sources told ANI.

The hill features were lying dormant and the Indian Army occupied them before the Chinese troops. Now our troops have an edge over the adversary in those areas, they said.

Sources said the foiling of Chinese army’s attempts to occupy the heights led to the firing of bullets in the air on at least three occasions from the northern bank of Pangong to the southern bank of the lake. Sources clarified that the Black Top and the Helmet Top hill features are on the Chinese side of the LAC while the heights occupied by the Indian side are in Indian territory.

After the occupation of heights by the Indian Army, the Chinese army has deployed around 3,000 additional troops of its combined arms brigade including its infantry and armoured troops near the Rezang la and Rechen La heights.
