North Korea, in its turn, fired back. Traces from North Korean shooting were found at the South Korean border station. In response, the South Korean military fired back. No victims were reported in South Korea.
Technically, Seoul and Pyongyang are in the state of military confrontation, as the Korean War of 1950-1953 finished by signing of only a truce agreement, and the countries do not have a peace treaty.
Exchanges of fire between the North and the South were registered several times last week at the sea and land borders.
