South Korean forces fire warning shots after North’s troops cross DMZ

CAMP HUMPHREYS, South Korea — Around 20 North Korean troops briefly crossed into the southern portion of the Demilitarized Zone over the weekend, prompting South Korean forces to warn the intruders by firing shots and using loudspeakers, the South’s military announced Tuesday. The North Korean troops who crossed the Military Demarcation Line at 12:30 p.m. Sunday “immediately” went back to their side of the border after the warnings, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a text message to reporters.

The border is covered with overgrown trees and other vegetation, making signs denoting the boundary difficult to see, South Korean army Col. Lee Sung-jun said during a news conference Tuesday. Some of the North Koreans were carrying “work tools,” he said, but declined to elaborate.

No unusual activity from North Korea was detected immediately after the incident, Lee added. The DMZ’s boundaries and the Military Demarcation Line — the actual border between the two Koreas — were established during armistice agreement negotiations to pause the 1950-53 Korean War.

North Koreans tunneling under DMZ?  Tunnels work well for Hamas and Mexican drug cartels.
