On Wednesday, hostilities between North Korea and South Korea significantly escalated as a result of a number of missile exchanges near each other’s coasts.
South Korea responded with three air-to-ground missiles across the disputed maritime demarcation line after North Korea launched at least 23 missiles and a barrage of artillery bombs.
One of the first 17 missiles, according to South Korea’s military, went toward a South Korean island before coming down close to the maritime border between the two nations.
South Korea issued an alert for an aerial raid on the island in response to the development.
North Korea is “totally responsible,” according to Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), for the situation’s escalation.
The pinpoint strike by our military, according to JCS, “demonstrated our capability and readiness to precisely target the enemy, as well as our capability and readiness to respond to any North Korean provocations.”
The North Korean missile launch occurred as Pyongyang, the country’s capital, promised to strike against what it sees as continuous South Korea-US invasion games.
In order to make the US and South Korea “pay the most horrific price in history,” North Korea had previously vowed to use nuclear weapons.
The US has insisted that it has no aggressive intentions toward North Korea, and the White House has promised to cooperate with partners to put a stop to the nation’s nuclear aspirations.
