North Korea redeploys soldiers and heavy weapons to inter-Korean border

Photos by ROK military and NK News show restoration of guard posts, days after DPRK scrapped military deal with South

North Korea appears to be rebuilding guard posts and deploying heavy weaponry to the inter-Korean border, days after scrapping a military deal with the South, Seoul’s defense ministry said Monday.

NK News reporting shows the DPRK has also added surveillance cameras to its most forward-facing guard posts this year, while military installations at one spot along the border appeared more heavily manned over the weekend than in the recent past.
