How And Why Of Kailash Range Operation In Ladakh

NEW DELHI: Three years ago, the Indian Army gained strategic heights on the Kailash Range along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh, thereby forcing the Chinese troops to come to the negotiating table. That was the largest build-up along the LAC, says Lt Gen Savneet Singh (Retd), who led the operation as the Commander of 17 Mountain Strike Corps. Speaking about the operation for the first time in public, Lt Gen Singh (Retd) told StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale on ‘The Gist’ about how it was planned, executed and what it achieved. He also gave a detailed description of the geography of the area.
