"Currently, we have no confirmation of the authenticity of the video", the army said, according to Hindustan Times. However, the visuals in the video matched reports of the Independence Day India-China clash: soldiers are seen punching and kicking each other and ultimately pelting stones at each other.

The Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) confirmed the incident at Pangong Lake four days after it occurred.

Personnel from both sides received minor injuries in the incident. Just $5 a month.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hu Chunying said, "I am not aware of the information".

Army Chief General Bipin Rawat will reportedly pay a three-day visit to Ladakh beginning Sunday during which he will take stock of the security preparedness along the border with China besides discussing key operational matters with top commanders, official sources said on Sunday.

Not taking any chances, Guam issues guidelines on surviving a nuclear attack
North Korea's latest missile test was its 13 (and tenth successful one) since US President Donald Trump assumed office in January. On Friday, the president said that USA military solutions against North Korea are now "locked and loaded".

India and China has been at cross roads due to ongoing dispute over Doklam region in Bhutan, which communist government in Beijing claims to be its own, while New Delhi maintains that the land belongs to Bhutan in accordance with last agreement.

The August 15 stone-pelting incident is a result of heightened border tensions more generally this year, since the Doklam standoff began especially, and a effect of the fact that Indian and Chinese border forces do not carry loaded weapons, which is created to prevent inadvertent escalation.

The confrontation itself was sparked after a Chinese PLA unit came across an Indian patrol on the northern bank of the Pangong Lake, which is controlled in parts by India (one-third) and China (two-thirds).

He did not confirm whether the incident involved stone pelting or use of rods, but emphasised that the incident should not be linked with what was happening in any other sector.

The Pangong Lake, a remote region lying at nearly 14,000 feet above sea level, has for decades been the focus of a bitter border dispute between China and India.
