Days after a violent face-off between India and China in Galwan, the latest set of satellite images have surfaced showing China diverting the course of Galwan River. The satellite pictures showing signs of the landscape of the valley being altered through widening tracks, moving earth and making river crossings were taken by the Earth-imaging company Planet Labs.
'Looking at it in Planet, it looks like China is constructing roads in the valley and possibly damming the river. There are a ton of vehicles on both sides - although they appear to be vastly more on the Chinese side.'
