North Korea Responds To US-South Korea Drills With Artillery Fires

North Korea’s military has ordered front-line units to fire artillery into the sea for a second consecutive day.

This is in what it called a response to drills by the United States and South Korean forces in an inland border region.

The order on Tuesday came a day after North Korea fired about 130 artillery rounds into waters near its western and eastern sea boundaries with South Korea.

According to Al Jazeera, a spokesman for the North Korean military said the latest planned artillery was in response to signs of South Korean artillery exercises in the border region.

The official called on the South to immediately stop its “provocative” military actions.

The South Korean and United States militaries are currently conducting live-fire exercises, launching systems in the Cheorwon region, which began on Monday and will continue until Wednesday.
