North Korea Provokes for the Second Consecutive Day, Fires 60 Shells Toward Yeonpyeong Island


South Korea's Contract Staff Headquarters said on the 6th, the North Korean military in the afternoon of the day between 4:00 to five o'clock to the northwest of Yeonpyeong Island fired more than 60 artillery shells, this is the North Korea two consecutive days to the North and South Korea maritime buffer zone to fire artillery shells, the morning of the 5th, the North Korea to the Baekryong Island and Yeonpyeong Island north of the region fired more than 200 artillery shells, which is the North Korea since 2010 since the North Korean bombardment of Yeonpyeong Island, North and South Korea's most serious military escalation. The situation in North and South Korea is heating up again.

After North Korea fired its artillery shells on the 5th, South Korea responded strongly by firing about 400 artillery shells at the maritime buffer zone, twice as many as the DPRK fired.

The Yonhap news agency reported that the military believes that the direction of the artillery shells fired on the 6th was not aimed at South Korea, but at areas such as the northern inland, and therefore did not see the need to implement countermeasures.
