Maxar Technologies announced satellite photos taken on June 22 showing construction activities taking place in the area near the site of a bloody fight on the night of June 15 in the Galwan valley, killing 20 Indian soldiers.

The large-sized structures China built on land at the Y-Junction, located close to the Galwan River, raised concerns about increasing the risk of conflict between the two nuclear-armed countries, despite the commanders.

New Delhi claims that Chinese structures are located on Indian territory adjacent to the Line of Actual Control (LAC), which has not been clearly demarcated.

Newly built structures include camouflage tents, structures leaning against cliffs, and a nearby suspected outpost structure with a wall or barrier.

The new structures are close to the Galwan River, near the site of a deadly scuffle between Indian and Chinese soldiers on June 22 (click to see larger image).

Nathan Ruser, a satellite data analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, said this construction activity shows that the two sides are less likely to de-escalate tensions.

Satellite images also show that the Indian side has built a defensive fence on the other side of the river, opposite where China built new structures.

India and China have not commented on this information.

Indian officials previously affirmed that they would closely monitor the process of easing tensions on the border according to the agreement and verify on the ground.

`China’s actions are worrying and cause loss of trust. If China says it is ready to withdraw its troops, we will wait for them to do so on the ground. The armed forces will remain on alert

Location of Indian and Chinese soldiers’ deadly brawl on the evening of June 15.

India-China border tensions have increased after a clash left dozens of soldiers from both countries injured last week in the Galwan river valley.

This was the first deadly clash after China ambushed and shot dead Indian soldiers at the LAC in 1975. China and India on June 17 tried to reduce tensions in the border area.
