North Korea sends more than 600 unwanted balloons

North Korea sends more than 600 unwanted balloons

Earlier this week, North Korea began its provocation by sending about 260 white balloons carrying packages filled with cigarette butts, plastic bottles, used batteries, fabric and fertilizer, to South Korea.

According to the dictatorship, this action is a response to South Korea carrying out “psychological warfare” by sending “leaflets and other garbage” via balloons, North Korean news agency KCNA wrote a few days ago.

Now North Korea has intensified its retaliatory measures and late Saturday sent more than 600 more balloons loaded with fertilizer and garbage to South Korea. This was reported by the AP news agency.

Some of the balloons were found equipped with timers, and it is suspected that they were designed to launch the balloons into the air.

The army warns

There is currently no information on whether anyone has been injured by the advancing balloons. The South Korean army reiterates its call on residents to beware of falling objects.
