South Korea scrambles fighter jets after detecting some 180 North Korean warplanes

SEOUL: South Korea’s army mentioned it has scrambled fighter jets after detecting some 180 North Korean warplanes close to the border on Friday.
Earlier, North Korea fired about 80 artillery rounds right into a maritime border zone in a single day, South Korea mentioned on Friday, as defence ministers from Seoul and Washington vowed to display dedication within the face of missile exams by the North.
North Korea fired a number of missiles into the ocean on Thursday, together with a potential failed intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), prompting the United States and South Korea to increase air drills which have angered Pyongyang.
Beginning shortly earlier than midnight on Thursday, South Korea’s army mentioned it had detected greater than 80 artillery rounds fired into the ocean by North Korea, in what it says is a violation of a 2018 inter-Korean settlement.
The South issued a warning communication to the North over the firing, the South Korean Ministry of Defence mentioned in an announcement.
