India-China Standoff: IAF’s Apache helicopters and Mig-29 fighter jets conduct night ops along LAC

New Delhi: The Indian Air Force continues to keep up the vigil along the India-China border amid the heightened tensions between the two countries.

Images and videos shared by news agency ANI show Apache attack helicopters and Mig-29 fighter aircrafts conducting night operations at a forward base near the Line of Actual Control.

This comes amid the strained relations between the Asian giants following the June 15 clash in Galwan Valley where 20 Indian soldiers lost their lives to border aggression by Chinese troops.

Last month, the IAF had moved a sizeable number of its frontline Sukhoi 30 MKI, Jaguar, Mirage 2000 aircraft and Apache attack helicopters to several key air bases including Leh and Srinagar.
