According to South Korea’s military, North Korea breached a 2018 inter-Korean agreement that aimed to reduce tensions by firing 130 artillery shells into the sea off its east and west coasts on Monday morning.

North Korea reportedly detected military exercises conducted by the South.

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

Leader Kim Jong-un’s latest show of military might saw shells land in a buffer zone near the maritime border, according to a report.
