Chinese hackers carried out thousands cyber attacks on India in the last five days
NEW DELHI, (BM) – Hackers from China have committed more than 40,000 cyber attacks on Indian Internet resources in the past five days, learned BulgarianMilitary.com according Maharashtra State Police Inspector Yashasvi Yadav.
“According to our information, over the past four to five days, at least 40,300 cyber attacks on resources in Indian cyberspace have been committed,” Yadav said.
Yadav noted that a surge in network attacks from China was recorded after tension intensified between the two countries in the east of the territory of Ladakh.
Recall that the confrontation between India and China intensified after clashes between the military of the two countries on the night of June 15-16 on the demarcation line between the two countries in the Galvan valley. The clash killed 20 Indian soldiers, another 76 Indian soldiers were injured.
Washington and Moscow are trying to help.
US President Donald Trump said June 21 that the American side is negotiating with India and China and is trying to help these countries overcome problems in relations.
“We are negotiating with India, we are negotiating with China. They have big problems,” Trump said.
He noted that the situation was “very tough” and that India and China had already reached physical clashes.
“We will try to help them,” the American leader added.
At same day the spokesman for the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, said that Moscow hoped that India and China would show diplomatic and political wisdom in order to prevent new exacerbations.
“Of course, we are worried about this incident, and we hope and are confident that both New Delhi and Beijing will show diplomatic and political wisdom so that they can independently find out wording without interference from any states that will allow them to avoid further such exacerbations,” said a Kremlin spokesman.
India and China quickly deployed heavy military equipment along the border between them.
China deployed on June 10 a large military group to the border with India, which, in particular, included many tanks, armored personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles and other armored vehicles as we reported earlier this month.
Some published pictures in social media from several sources showed countless infantry fighting vehicles waiting to be dispatched on railway platforms, Type-96 tanks on tractors, as well as the arrival of units at the deployment site.
Same day a large convoy of Indian military trucks is heading towards the disputed region, reported several Indian sources by using Telegram channel.
Tensions between the two countries have forced India to seek an ally.
An agreement on the use of each other’s military bases was concluded by India and Australia, the Indian Foreign Ministry said June 4 as we also reported same day.
The agreement between both parties is to provide access to each other’s military bases – a pact that will clear the way for new military exchanges and exercises in the Indo-Pacific region.
An agreement on mutual logistic support was signed during a virtual summit between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison.
To clarify, India has entered into a similar treaty with the United States, which is seen as part of broader security cooperation to balance China’s growing economic and military weight in the region.
What actually happened on the night of June 15-16?
Three Indian soldiers were killed in a clash with Chinese troops in Ladakh, the disputed area of Kashmir, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing several local Indian sources.
Following media reports of the deaths of Indian soldiers, China called on India to “not take unilateral actions and not wreak havoc.”
China also accused India of violating the border and attacking Chinese soldiers.
It later became known that on the night of June 15-16 the clash killed 20 Indian soldiers, another 76 Indian soldiers were injured.
Clashes between the two warring forces also took place in May.
A massive brawl between the Indian and Chinese soldiers took place on the border of Sikkim (India) and the Tibet Autonomous Region (China) as we reported on May 10.
The incident occurred on May 9 at a mountain pass at an altitude of about 5 thousand meters.
“Four Indian soldiers and seven Chinese soldiers were injured during the confrontation, which involved about 150 soldiers,” one of the Indian officers said on condition of anonymity.
According to the source, the conflict was resolved at the local level.
Indo-Pakistani conflict for Kashmir
Since 1858, the territory of modern India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Myanmar was considered the colonial possession of Great Britain. In 1947, British India gained independence and was divided into two independent states: India and Pakistan. The main point of conflict between the two countries was the Kashmir region. It has become the disputed territory claimed by India, Pakistan and China.
After the first Indo-Pakistani war (1947-1949), Kashmir was divided into two controlled units. The ceasefire line (now called the “control line”) in Kashmir actually, but not legally, became the border between India and Pakistan.
The situation is aggravated by the fact that Kashmir has traditionally been a Muslim territory, and now the vast majority of the population are Muslims. After the uprising in Indian Jammu and Kashmir in 1980, the activities of terrorist organizations supporting the independence of the region increased dramatically.
Pakistan is interested in gaining control over all of Kashmir, because by doing so, it, among other things, gets a convenient transport route to its ally, China.
