India Building Emergency Landing Strip In South Kashmir On Jammu-Srinagar Highway



Amidst flaring India-China tensions and ongoing India-Pakistan skirmishes and the possibility of ‘limited war’ the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) is constructing an emergency landing strip on the Srinagar-Jammu national highway. 

Indian Army Could Vent Out ‘Chinese Frustration’ By Attacking Pakistan – Pak Army

The BRI officials reportedly claimed that the emergency landing strip had no connection with border conflict with China and called it as an old project which was approved some time ago.

The work has started adjacent to the newly constructed national highway between Srinagar and Jammu near South Kashmir’s Bijbehara area. An NHAI officer said the project involves the development of a 3.5-kilometre emergency landing strip.

China Expanding ‘Military Arsenal’ In High Altitude Border Regions To Address Threats

“It was already in the plan when the construction of the new national highway began in Kashmir. The work couldn’t be taken up earlier due to the Covid-19 lockdown.”

As earlier reported by the EurAsian Times, Chinese soldiers intensified control measures in the Galwan valley of Aksai Chin, a region controlled by China and claimed by India. The recent border conflicts involved the two sides clashing in an ‘arm-less’ scuffle at the Naku La pass in North Sikkim, wounding troopers from both the sides.

The Chinese military helicopters were later seen flying close to the LAC. India also deployed its troops along the volatile border after reports of China pitching tents and accumulating soldiers near the river Galwan.

Meanwhile, tensions with Pakistan also remain very high. The DG of Pakistans Inter-Services Public Relations reiterated the apprehensions of PM Imran Khan and Shah Mehmood Qureshi that India is planning a false flag operation against Pakistan. The DG-ISPR also admitted that the situation along Line of Control is very delicate.

As EurAsian Times reported earlier, the Indian Army killed three militants in Pulwama yesterday which added to the 13 terrorists that Indian security forces claimed to have eliminated recently. Earlier  Indian armed forces claimed to have eliminated three terrorists in the Naushera Sector and an additional 10 heavily-armed terrorists in Mendhar along the Line of Control.
