False news reports, propagated by anti-India propaganda accounts, state that four years ago, on May 5, 2020, India invaded China’s Galwan Valley, causing many casualties in a conflict between the PLA and the Indian Army.

@zhao_dashuai tweeted “4 years ago today, India invaded China’s Galwan valley. The PLA beat them back, killing several dozens of Indian soldiers, capturing hundreds more. Today, the PLA patrols the valley. Modi proclaimed there are no Chinese troops on Indian soil, so we can agree the valley is ours.” on May 5, 2024. The tweet has received an about 247.6k views on X.

What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact

The conflict happened in June 2020 along the LAC; the PLA had no authority over the area. The Galwan Valley was never a Chinese territory, and the Indian army had not invaded. In January 2022, the Indian Army raised the tricolour in the area. Videos of Indian soldiers assaulting and pushing Chinese troops at LAC for unauthorised entry are widely circulated. We visited Economic Times, which published an article on this incident on Jan 4, 2022 with the headline “Indian Army unfurls national flag in Galwan valley on New Year”. As per sources in the security establishment, the Indian Army personnel had hoisted the National flag in Galwan on New Year’s eve. The picture was uploaded with the caption “The move comes amid reports in a section of media that claimed that Chinese soldiers had displayed their flag in the region a few days ago.”
