South Korea made it clear on Tuesday that they will not tolerate any aggression from the North Koreans.
North Korea launched an unidentified object at South Korea on Tuesday, prompting a rapid military response to destroy the object.
According to Fox News, South Korea fired 90 machine gun rounds toward the North Korean border.
However, they didn’t stop there. Shortly after, they launched an air surveillance aircraft to ensure that the North Koreans understood that their actions carried consequences.
Conservative Tribune reports:
According to BBC News, South Korea’s military is not letting up. In a statement, the country’s leaders promised to “maintain high vigilance” after the incident.
This after a May 22 gathering of the UN Security Council, during which members agreed to “take further significant measures including sanctions” to force North Korea to stop its “highly destabilizing behavior.”
This is not the first time South Korea has warned its neighboring country about foreign objects. In January 2016, South Korea fired warning shots when a North Korean drone flew into the country’s airspace.
Do you think an armed conflict with the North Koreans is inevitable?
