Earlier, the editor-in-chief of China’s official English Daily Global Times had confirmed that several Chinese soldiers have been killed by Indian Army in a violent clash in Gawlan, Ladakh last night. Editor-in-chief Hu Shijin has tweeted that according to his information, there were many casualties on the Chinese side in the clash in the Galvan Valley last night. However, Hu Shijin in his tweet took the opportunity to threaten India with war.
New reports from various sources in Indian media say that 5 Chinese soldiers were killed and 11 were injured. The source of the news was quoted as a reporter of Global Times. On this, Global Times tweeted and clarified that Global Times has not reported the actual number of soldiers killed anywhere, nor can they confirm these numbers at the moment but seemed to accept that there were a number of casualties on the Chinese side.
It is clear from the tweet of Global Times and the tweet of their editor that many Chinese soldiers have been killed in the clash. But the Chinese media is still hesitant to accept and disclose the numbers. Earlier, the Indian Army also confirmed the killing of Chinese soldiers but no numbers were revealed.
Senior journalist Aditya Raj Kaul tweeted: “Unofficial reports say China has lost 4-5 People’s Liberation Army soldiers after their violent provocation yesterday in Eastern Ladakh. “Considering they’ve been hiding their #COVID19 cases and deaths, one can imagine the manipulation in the casualties they faced in border clash”, he tweeted.
