North Korea Puts Troops on Combat Alert
Bloomberg reported Sunday that before a U.S.-South Korean drills, North Korea put their troops on combat alert.
North Korea threatened retaliation if their territory was entered, Bloomberg said. North Korea will also cut off military communications with South Korea.
Tensions have risen in the region over the past few weeks as North Korea is believed to be preparing to test a ballistic missle, Bloomberg said. North Korea, however, says they are only planning to launch a peaceful satelite.
Reuters also reported the story, citing the drills as annual.
Reuters also added North Korea has said any shooting down of its missiles, such as the ballistic missiles they make be testing, an act of war.
