The Korean Peninsula shown in Dark Green.
(Worthy News) - U.S. officials expressed growing alarm Thursday after North and South Korea fired dozens of artillery rounds at each other, ratcheting tensions on the divided peninsula to their highest point in nearly a year.
South Korea, which is engaged in annual joint military drills with the U.S., fired back at the North after Pyongyang launched a barrage of shells southward in anger over Seoul’s broadcasting of anti-North propaganda messages across the Demilitarized Zone.
And on Friday morning, North Korea upped the ante further, at least rhetorically, saying its troops near the border are in a “quasi-state of war” and should be ready for any operations by Friday evening. [ Source ]
