WW3 fears continue to escalate as clashes between India’s army and China’s army persist. New footage has emerged which appears to show Chinese and India troops engaged in a brawl with their fists and sticks. The clash happened along the currently disputed border with some claiming it could be in the Galwan Valley.
Images of the clash have begun circulating on Chinese social media.
Details of the clash have remained scarce with some on social media claiming the footage was from a deadly altercation on June 15, 2020 that resulted in the death of at least 20 Indian soldiers.
However, a military analyst who spoke to the South China Morning Post said he believed the footage could be from an earlier conflict on the Galwan River in May 2020.
Chinese experts have warned of the consequences if these skirmishes alongside the border continue.

Michael Kugelman, the deputy director at The Asia Program, noted that if these skirmishes turn more violent chances of war increase.
During an interview with Express.co.uk, he said: “There could actually be the use of arms.
“Obviously if you use heavier forms of weaponry this intensifies the risk of casualties and fatalities.
“That is when you really need to worry about the types of escalation that could lead to a potential conflict.”
