South Korea’s military began a major live-fire exercise Monday amid high tensions on the divided peninsula following North Korea’s deadly bombardment of a border island last month.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said the five-day series of drills would take place in 29 locations off South Korea, despite the North’s claims that it could trigger war.
It was unclear whether one of the firing drills — near the flashpoint disputed Yellow Sea border — had begun as earlier announced.
YTN television said around midday that firing had not yet started off Daecheong island. A JCS spokesman said he had no confirmation of the report.
