The Republic of Korea fired dozens of shells on Thursday at the Democratic People's Republic of Korea after the DPRK lobbed a single rocket round at a ROK town near the world's most heavily armed border, the ROK's Defense Ministry said.

The Defense Ministry said in a statement that its artillery shells landed at the place where the DPRK had fired its rocket. There were no other immediate details from the military and no reports of injuries. It appeared that the DPRK did not respond to the ROK's returned fire.

The DPRK had previously threatened to attack ROK loudspeakers that have been broadcasting, for the first time in 11 years, anti-Pyongyang messages across their shared border. Pyongyang also restarted its own loudspeakers aimed at the ROK.
