- Security and Intelligence Consultancy Stratfor Report Claims – China Builds Missile Site Near Mansarovar Lake, Tibet
- Before 2016, Tibet had only one Chinese helipad and one air defense site, built four airbases in the region in the past year.
China has built 13 new military bases near the border with India in the last 3 years. These include three airbases, 5 air defense units and five helipads. China started preparing these bases after the Doklam dispute in 2017.
However, the construction of four of the five helipads that were ready began in June this year when there was a violent clash between the soldiers of the two countries in Ladakh. This claim was made by Belgian security and intelligence consultancy Stratfor in its report released on Tuesday.
China doubling the number of military bases
According to the report, it seems that China changed its strategy after the Doklam dispute. It has started doubling the number of military bases at places bordering India. China's military has installed four air defense systems on the already existing airbase. It has designed several runways and also built shelters to hide fighter jets. It is also increasing the number of fighter jets to be deployed at its military bases.

Assessing the image of open source satellite has revealed many new things. China has built a surface-to-surface missile site on the banks of Lake Mansarovar in Tibet. Apart from this, Doklam is also preparing a similar site in disputed areas of Sikkim. It appears in the graph issued by Stratfor that until 2016, Tibet had only one Chinese helipad and an air defense site. Within the last one year, it has built four airbases, four helipads and one air defense site.
