According to US News, the Indian forces repelled a military incursion against China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers in the disputed border territory in the high Himalayas in 2022, thanks to the information sharing done by the US military.

Through US real-time intel-sharing, Indian forces had been notified that PLA troops attempted to occupy a part of the disputed border in the northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang region in early December. Consequently, India mobilized its armed forces into the area and established a blockade to prevent hundreds of PLA soldiers from entering.
