According to the South Korean military, North Korea has violated a 2018 inter-Korean agreement that was intended to curtail tensions by firing 130 artillery rounds into the sea off both its east and west coasts Monday morning. 

North Korea allegedly detected military drills being conducted by the South.

Verbal warning communications were sent to the North Korean side, according to a statement from South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The latest demonstration of military might from leader Kim Jong-un saw shells land in a buffer zone near the sea border, according to a report.
