Satellite images taken between June 9 (before Indo-China clash) and June 16 (after Indo-China clash) show China trying to disrupt geography in the Galwan Valley, in eastern Ladakh by possibly building a dam as river flow appears to be stopped, presence of trucks, heavy machinery is also seen.

Days after the deadly Indo-China clash in the Galwan valley in the eastern Ladakh region, it seems Beijing is trying to change the geography of the region, by building a dam on the Galwan river, moving machinery, convoy, satellite images suggest. The satellite images captured by Earth-imaging company Planet Labs reveal how China was altering the landscape of the Galwan valley through widening tracks, moving earth and making river crossings.

Images from the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh's Galwan river valley show Chinese machinery, trucks and convoy along the bald mountains. These images prove how China breached the international treaty of no activity near the border. The images, shot on June 16 (Tuesday), a day after soldiers engaged in hand-to-hand combat in the freezing Galwan Valley, show an increase in activity from a week earlier, Reuters report says.
