Military forces of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in front-line units conducted exercises targeting Republic of Korea loudspeakers used for propaganda broadcasts, Yonhap News Agency reported on Wednesday, citing military officials.

A military official was quoted as saying that DPRK forces have frequently created openings for machine guns in their guard posts near the military demarcation line - the de facto border - inside the Demilitarized Zone.

These openings indicated that DPRK forces are ready to strike targets on the southern side of the DMZ. The ROK believes the targets are its loudspeakers through which its propaganda broadcasts are aired.
