South Korea recently found a drone in the mountains near the Demilitarized Zone that was confirmed to be from North Korea. Authorities in South Korea called it a ‘grave provocation’ in violation of the Korean War truce.
According to reports, the drone crashed as it was returning to the North. It was equipped with a camera that contained at least 10 aerial photographs of a U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system located in the southern region of South Korea.
A South Korean official of the Joint Chiefs of Staff office, Jeon Dong-jin, noted, “The intrusion of our airspace by the North Korean drone and photographing of a military base is a violation of the Armistice and an agreement on non-aggression and is an act of grave provocation.”
“We strongly condemn the North’s continued attempts at penetrating the South with drones and once again, demand all acts of provocation are halted,” he added.
Of course, the North Korean regime doesn’t care what they’ve violated. The despotic ruler, Kim Jong-Un, has been conducting missile tests and developing nuclear weapons in the face of a U.N. resolution. He’s been allowed to do as he pleases for years.
This time South Korean authorities warned Kim Jong-Un that if North Korea continues down this path of aggression, it would respond with military force.
