India-China Border: Indian Army Executes ‘Op Snow Leopard’ At LAC
The Indian Army waited for three months of planning before it executed ‘Operation Snow Leopard’ to control key heights in eastern Ladakh.
The Indian Army bolstered its dominance over a number of strategies overlooking key Chinese-held positions around Pangong Lake area in eastern Ladakh last week. This news comes as brigade commanders and commanding officers of the two militaries held talks to cool tensions in the region. The Indian Army waited for three months of planning before it executed ‘Operation Snow Leopard’ to control key heights along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh, sources said. Initially, the Indian Army waited for China to move back but when that did not happen, Army Chief General MM Narawane and Northern Army Commander Lt Gen YK Joshi cleared the crucial operation.
And after months of planning, the Indian Army finally went on to occupy strategic heights identified along the LAC under ‘Op Snow Leopard.’ These heights and features have given India not just tactical but also a strategic advantage on the ground. The Army Special Forces now command several features and flanks at multiple friction points and high altitude mountain warfare specialist teams were prepared Under ‘Op Snow Leopard’.
