On June 16, 2017, Chinese troops entered Doklam territory with construction vehicles and road-building equipment began extending an existing road southward. To stop the Chinese troops from constructing the road, around 270 Indian troops, on June 18, 2017, with weapons and two bulldozers, entered Doklam.

Doklam is claimed by both China as well as India's ally Bhutan.

Both India and China, on August 28, announced that they had withdrawn all their soldiers from Doklam.
