China has conducted live-fire exercises in Tibet near India amid escalating military tension with its neighbour.

Footage of the mock battle, which reportedly took place ‘in the past few days’, was released by China Central Television Station (CCTV) today.

The release of the footage is thought to be an attempt to increase pressure on New Delhi as Beijing has warned that their ‘restraint has its limits’ during an border standoff since June.

The live-fire drill in Tibet was held on at an altitude of 4,600 metres (15,091 feet).

The Chinese state media did not specify the exact location of the drill, but it has been suggested to be the Himalayas where China, India and Bhutan meet.

The drill, carried out by the artillery units of The Chinese People’s Liberation Army, saw soldiers striking various targets, including tanks, rocket launch sites and a military command post, with howitzers and rocket artillery, reported CCTV.
