New Delhi: After tension erupted between the Indian Army and the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) in Arunachal Pradesh, Indian Air Force (IAF) jets were patrolling the skies of Arunachal Pradesh.

The purpose of this patrolling was to prevent the Chinese Army from violating the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

IAF sources added that the patrolling was being done to prevent air space violations by the Chinese Air Force. The sources also said that the multiple fighter aircraft were flying near the LAC.

The clash between the Indian Army and Chinese PLA on the 17,000-ft high peak in Arunachal Pradesh took place on December 9.

China has been repeatedly trying to take control of the peak. Sources in the Indian Army said that India has a firm control on the peak.

This peak provides a commanding view on both sides of the border, the sources said.
