South Korea fires warning rounds as North Korean drones encroach

According to the South Korean military, airplanes and attack helicopters were scrambled and warning shots were fired after North Korean drones violated South Korean airspace on Monday.

South Korea tracked the North Korean drones across the Military Demarcation Line between the two nations after detecting them around 10:25 a.m. in the western city of Gimpo, according to the military.

A KA-1 light attack aircraft from the Republic of Korea crashed immediately after departing its Wonju base in the country’s east, a defense ministry spokesman said. The aircraft’s two pilots were able to elude the crash and are currently in the hospital.

The South Korean Ministry of Transportation announced yesterday that departures from Incheon and Gimpo airports were suspended at the request of the military.

A ministry official told Reuters that the halt began at 1:08 p.m. at Gimpo and 1:22 p.m. at Incheon and lasted approximately one hour before flight departures resumed around 2:10 p.m.
