The standoff between China and India along the Doklam Plateau has shown no signs of de-escalating, as India continues to bolster its strength and increase operational readiness along the border.

New Delhi raised the military alertness level as a “matter of caution,” according to anonymous sources speaking to Reuters. The level in question is known as “no war, no peace,” and instructs the soldiers to take defensive positions.

India sends its troops onto “operational alert” every year in the fall — but this year the state has been activated early. “It’s out of caution. It has been done because of the situation,” the anonymous source told Reuters. “The troop level along the border with China in the Sikkim and Arunachal sectors [next to Doklam] has been increased,” another anonymous official told the India Times.
