What leaked out by Chinese netizens

Based on the Tweet caption, the young soldiers were not bidding farewell to their parents and they were only informed of being sent to the frontline after getting on the vehicle. If this is the truth, these Chinese soldiers crying is due to their fear for the harsh condition and risk of fighting against the Indian army.

Indian soldiers, with a more well-built physique, have advantages in cold-fighting.

Some comments below the Tweet also correspond to the theory, in which the most liked comment reads:

"Looking at the screenshot of WeChat a few days ago, it was the chat of someone with one of the soldier’s mother. He took part in the battle between China and India but he was not allowed to shoot. He must avoid the bullet crossing the border because that was regarded as starting a war. He could only fight with cold weapons like a gang fight. The young boy then broke his bone and injured but fortunately saved his life. Another boy who was just 17-year-old lost his life in the battle though. It’s too pitiful looking at this bus, seeing all those young teenagers sent to fight on the frontline."
