Soldiers seen punching, kicking each other.

According to the Indian Express, PLA troops "tried to enter the Indian side in two areas - Finger Four and Finger Five - twice between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m".

The video, initially shared by defence reporters on Twitter, went viral, but its authenticity could not immediately be verified.

The video surfaced a day after India formally confirmed the clash had taken place at Pangong Tso.

It shows troops from both sides goading each other as they stand in two uneven clusters, with soldiers intermittently holding their comrades back and making threatening sorties towards their opponents.

A scuffle had taken place between the Indian and Chinese troops this week, on Independence day, which saw stones being pelted from both sides.

The Indian Army has neither accepted nor denied the video.

Man City open Evans talks as Alexis & Mbappe interest continues
Apparently the City gaffer admires "Evans' ability on the ball and sound positional sense" and also his versatility in defence. Arsenal previously showed an interest in signing Evans a year ago but West Brom also rejected the Gunners approach.

India shares more than 800 km border with China in Eastern Ladakh. No weapons are used in the video, however.

The situation was defused when both sides performed the standard operating procedure known as a 'banner drill, ' a ritual in which representatives from both sides hold up their flags and declare ownership of the territory before retreating to their respective strongholds.

Such incursions and potential clashes are likely at vulnerable spots along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Himachal, Sikkim and Arunachal sectors.

The August 15 stone-pelting incident is a result of heightened border tensions more generally this year, since the Doklam standoff began especially, and a effect of the fact that Indian and Chinese border forces do not carry loaded weapons, which is created to prevent inadvertent escalation.

Following the Ladakh clash, local army commanders from India and China discussed the incident in a Border Personnel meeting.

The Ladakh altercation was particularly highlighted by Indian media as it came just as Indian and Chinese soldiers completed two months facing off at the Doklam plateau.

India and China has been at cross roads due to ongoing dispute over Doklam region in Bhutan, which communist government in Beijing claims to be its own, while New Delhi maintains that the land belongs to Bhutan in accordance with last agreement.
