An old video of a scuffle between Indian & Chinese soldiers is shared in the context of recent border stand-off


A video of a scuffle between two different armies is being shared on social media with a claim that it is related to the recent India-China stand-off at the Ladakh border. FACTLY found the video to be old and not related to any recent incident. The video was telecasted by ‘Zee News’ channel on 25 August 2014. The channel reported that the Chinese troops have tried to destroy a border wall along the Tawang district in Arunachal Pradesh. But the Indian forces had obstructed them. The complete video of the incident was telecasted by ‘India News’ on 24 August 2014. Both the news channels have not stated the exact time of occurrence of the incident in the video. Since the video was found to exist at least since 2014, it can be concluded that it is in no way related to the recent stand-off between India & China.
