` North Korea 'blows up' liaison office with South after threatening to send in military
South Korea's claim: North Korea destroyed a "joint liaison office" on the border



Authorities in South Korea say North Korea has blown up a joint communications office in the border village of Kaesong.

The development comes as the North threatened military action against the South.

The site is located in North Korean territory and was built in 2018 to help Koreans on both sides.

It has been closed since January to prevent the spread of Ft. Code 19.

Tensions between South and North Korea have been rising for weeks. Tensions escalated when propaganda leaflets were thrown in the north by deviant groups of northern citizens in the south.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yoo Jong, threatened to destroy the office last week.



Kim Jong Un's sister has taken steps to make a move soon 

North Korea has said in an explanation that it is prepared to send troops to the truce zone on the fringe with South Korea. 

The admonition was given in light of a freak bunch escaping North Korea to South Korea and sending leaflets toward the North for promulgation. 

A weekend ago, North Korea's Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yoo Jong, said she had requested the military to be prepared for the move.

Be that as it may, the military says it is "prepared to make the bleeding edge a stronghold and increment its military observation." 

Strains are ascending between the two nations over the booklets. They are regularly blown north with the assistance of inflatables. 


South Korea's safeguard service said Tuesday that it had reacted to the new dangers and was intently checking military activity in the north with the United States.



What did the North say?

There is a ceasefire area between North and South Korea called the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). The area was formed along the border during the Korean War in the 1950s.

On Tuesday, the North Korean military said it was reviewing its strategy to allow troops to enter the ceasefire area.

The military said in a statement that it was on high alert and was ready to expedite any decision by the government.

The statement came as South Korean leader Kim Jong Un threatened to attack South Korea on Saturday.

His sister, Kim Yu-jung, is also considered an important leader in the northern state.

He vowed to take "action", instructed the military and ended his statement by saying: "Garbage must be thrown in the bin."

What's in the booklets?
Last week, the North cut off all communication with the South. This includes a hotline phone link between the leaders of the two countries.

He was said to be angry at the deviant group sitting in the south and throwing leaflets to the north.



Deviant groups often send balloons across the border containing booklets and other items. They include food, a dollar bill, a radio, USB and South Korean dramas or new items.

The South Korean government has already tried to stop the group, saying its actions endanger the population near the border.

President Moon Jae-in has directly called on the North to return to the negotiating table and not make the situation more difficult.

What is a Ceasefire Zone?

The Ceasefire Zone or DMZ was created after the Korean War in 1953 to create a buffer zone between the two countries. Neither army is present here.

Decades later, there are occasional shootings, defecting North Korean soldiers fleeing, and talks are under way to reduce tensions and bring peace. It has also become a tourist destination in South Korea.

Kim Jong Un also shook hands with Donald Trump and Moon Jae-in during talks between North Korea and the United States.

For the past two years, the South Korean government in Seoul has sought to make this horrific border area a haven of peace.

In September 2018, in the northern capital, the leaders of the two countries expressed support for reducing military tensions on the border.


However, contrary to its name, it is still considered one of the most heavily militarized areas in the world.
