Dec 5, 2022

North Korea fired about 130 artillery shells into the eastern and western maritime buffer zones on Monday in response to South Korea and the United States conducting live-fire military exercises in the border region.

This was reported by Yonhap.


According to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), DPRK artillery shelling was probably carried out using multiple rocket launchers.

The shells hit maritime buffer zones north of the Northern Boundary Line (the actual maritime border), which were established under a military agreement between Seoul and Pyongyang on September 19, 2018.
