Nov 2, 2022

North Korea fired more than 100 artillery rounds Wednesday from its east coast into a military buffer zone established by a military agreement with South Korea.

The South Korean military said this on Wednesday, Yonhap reported.

The shelling is a violation of a 2018 agreement not to conduct such activities in the zone, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said.


The firing came after North Korea fired a volley of ballistic missiles, including one that flew over the sea border with South Korea. The agency also specified that the DPRK military launched at least 17 short-range ballistic missiles and ground-to-air missiles on November 2.

South Korean President Yoon Suk Yol called the launch a territorial violation. Seoul responded to Pyongyang's actions by launching three air-to-ground missiles into international waters on the North Korean side of the maritime border.
