S. Korea opened fire on N. Korean propaganda balloons crossing MDL: MND

MND says previously unidentified objects were balloons filled with pro-DPRK leaflets

A previously unidentified “flying object” which crossed into South Korea from the North at around 1600 KST yesterday was multiple propaganda balloons sent by Pyongyang to the South, the ROK Ministry of National Defense (MND) announced on Wednesday.

“The unidentified flying objects that have entered and left the Military Demarcation Line (MDL) from 1200 to 2030 KST yesterday were neither drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)…,” Moon Sang-gyun, an MND spokesperson, told local media.
