21 june 2012 002Dharamshala: - Chinese army conducted a fire drill in the so called Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) for anti-tank units. This was in order to test precision strike capability of the units, according to reports.

The so called People's Liberation Army (PLA) organized this drill on the 14th of June according to multiple media reports and the official PLA DAILY. This drill has followed a major air drill that had taken place in March within the Central Tibet.

Drills by the Chinese military have been more than frequent in the Tibetan region over the past year. These drills have had the sole objective of testing the precision strike capability of their weaponry as well as raising the moral of the Chinese troops.

These repeated drills have put India on alert. Analysts within the Indian fraternity feel that China might be preparing for some kind of military strike.

In the past week, two men have also self- immolated, bringing a stronger Chinese security presence in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa. There have been skewed reasons for the expulsion of many Tibetans in the region.

The TAR is under the control of the Chinese government and is fighting for independence through a government in exile based in Dharamshala India. In the past few months the situation has escalated in almost all parts of Tibet.
