10 Soldiers, Missing, Avalanche, Siachen glacier

Siachen glacier In Ladakh:

JAMMU: Ten soldiers were missing after the avalanche of the Siachen glacier in Ladakh.

The base is at an altitude of 19,000 feet. The Indian Army and Air Force launched a rescue operation.

“A senior official said on Wednesday that an avalanche attacked a patrol south of Siachin Glacier earlier in the day and that 10 soldiers, including a junior commander, were missing.

Last month, four Indian soldiers patrolled in the Ladakh region of the Himalayan region.

The Siachen Glacier is the highest battlefield in the world. Avalanches and landslides are common in the region during the winter. The temperature can be as low as minus 60 degrees Celsius (140 degrees Fahrenheit).

In January, four soldiers were killed in the avalanche, and four more soldiers died last year when they were buried near Leh.

Since 1984, an estimated 8,000 soldiers have died from glaciers, and almost all come from avalanches, landslides, frostbite, altitude sickness or heart failure, not fighting.
