North Korea Released Fire Against South in a Surprise Attack

North Korea has staged out another attack against its long-term political foe  today. 

North Korea released multiple fire attacks towards the South in the Demilitarized Zone dividing the peninsula Sunday which propel the South to retaliate. 

The fire exchange between the two countries follows the reappearance of North Korean President Kim Kong Un after his absence for almost three weeks that raise high speculation and generates rumours about his health.  

Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) report that South Korean guard post was stroke severally by the North though no casualties were recorded in the attack. 

The JCS added that, it was communicating with the North via their military hotline to determine the cause of the incident.

Seoul said regarding the attack,  “Our military responded with two rounds of gunfire and a warning announcement according to our manual."

The two countries have been in a long time technical war since the end of Korean War in 1953. As a result, Demilitarized Zone is one of the most fortified places on earth fenced with barbed-wire and minefields.

In a bid to ease the military tension at the border of the countries, both Presidents Kim of North and Moon Jae-in of South singed an agreement  at a summit in Pyongyang in September 2018, but all is just in written and not in implementation at the end of the North.
