ROK choppers spotted near DMZ after collapse of military deal with North Korea

Photos show three helicopters where flights were previously banned, underscoring increased military activity near border

At least three South Korean military helicopters flew toward the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) on the east side of the peninsula on Tuesday, flights that were prohibited until Seoul suspended a military deal with North Korea late last month.

The three choppers — likely UH-60P Black Hawks — appeared to fly toward the Tongil Unification Observatory near Goseong in South Korea before turning around and flying back south, photos obtained by NK News show.
