N/S Korea exchange fire

In an escalation of the tense situation in the region, North and South Korea exchanged fire over their heavily fortified border Thursday, the South Korean Defense Ministry said.

South Korea detected a projectile, assumed to be a small rocket, that was fired toward the western province of Gyeonggi, a Defense Ministry official told CNN.

The South Korean military responded by firing a few dozen shells at the area from which the North Korean projectile was fired, the official said.

The Pentagon is monitoring the escalating tension closely, Cmdr. William Urban, a Defense Department spokesman, told CNN's Brian Todd.


And a U.S. official told CNN's Barbara Starr that the U.S. believes that North Korea fired a shot at a South Korean loudspeaker, and South Korea responded with 36 artillery shells.

The U.S. believes North Korea deliberately placed mines in the path of a South Korean patrol in the demilitarized zone between the two countries, sparking the exchanges, the official said.


Tensions spiked on the Korean Peninsula after two South Korean soldiers were seriously wounded by landmines on August 4 in the demilitarized zone.

South Korea also has accused the North of planting the mines, an allegation that Pyongyang denies.

Seoul vowed a "harsh" response to the landmines and resumed blaring propaganda messages over the border from huge loudspeakers.

The move infuriated North Korea, which called the broadcasting "a direct action of declaring a war." Over the weekend, it threatened to blow up the South Korean speakers and also warned of "indiscriminate strikes."

    Those two South Korean soldiers lost legs in the DMZ from North Korean mines according to SK, damn.....if North Korea didn't have nukes, there would be another full scale war again. North Korea has injured and killed so many SK soldiers these last few years, amazing what nukes can help a country get away with.

    NK will never be able to take over SK and they know it. Their leaders may be a little crazy, but they're not suicidal. Still, SK better be careful, any nation with over a million soldiers and leaders like North Korea's should be taken seriously.

    oh, this is true.
    but remember, NK runs their mouths CONSTANTLY about their might; it's 🤬 but it hasn't stopped the talk. so why would you spend 60-some years telling your populace you TOTALLY could crush SK right now, but, uh, well, there's a lot to do this weekend?
