North Korea has set up its artillery inside the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in its efforts to stop South Korea's broadcasts against the North.


The North reportedly brought 76.2-millimeter artillery guns into the DMZ and positioned more military units behind the DMZ on Saturday, according to Yonhap News Agency. The guns are supposedly the same weapons the North recently used in its preemptive strikes at the South's western border regions in Thursday afternoon.

The North's regrouping of the artillery inside the DMZ is a clear violation of the armistice and their non-aggression agreement, the source said. The North has been keeping the weapons outside the DMZ until now.

The South has been monitoring the North's movement of its military units as the North demanded the South stop the psyop propaganda using loudspeakers before 5:00 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 22.
