SEOUL, October 19. /TASS/. South Korea and North Korea exchanged fire at the border, the Republic of Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff reported on Sunday.
No victims were reported in South Korea.
Another border incident occurred at about 17:40 local time (12:40 Moscow time) as near the city of Paju in the western sector of the demilitarisation zone, dividing the two countries, several warning shots were made from the South Korean side as North Korean soldiers were approaching the demarcation line in the middle of the demilitarisation zone. Before the shots, the military of South Korea voiced several warnings through loudspeakers.
North Korea, in its turn, fired back. Traces from North Korean shooting were found at the South Korean border station.
In response, the South Korean military fired back.
Technically, Seoul and Pyongyang are in the state of military confrontation, as the Korean War of 1950-1953 finished by signing of only a truce agreement, and the countries do not have a peace treaty.
Exchanges of fire between the North and the South were registered several times last week at the sea and land borders.
