S. Korean Army Accused of Opening Fire at North Side

    Pyongyang, March 1 (KCNA) -- South Korean army fired a machine gun at a post of the north side in the area near the Military Demarcation Line (MDL) on Feb. 28, according to military sources. At around 19: 50 that day south Korean soldiers at a MP post near Marker No. 0916 of the MDL in the eastern sector of the front fired two large-calibre machine gun bullets toward the north side.
    This posed a grave threat to the lives of soldiers of the Korean People's Army who were on their routine sentry duty.
    The gun-fire, timing to coincide with the incessant infiltration of warships into the waters of the north side in the West Sea of Korea, escalating military tension, goes to clearly prove that the south Korean military authorities are deliberately scheming to aggravate the inter-Korean relations, pursuant to the U.S. imperialists' vicious hostile policy toward the DPRK.
    If the south Korean army keep perpetrating one reckless military provocation after another they will never evade a counterstrike of the Korean People's Army.
    The south Korean military authorities should apologize to the north side for their recent gun-fire, promise to prevent recurrence of such incident and punish those responsible.
