North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has issued a severe warning to their southern neighbors over 11 loudspeakers that the South Koreans have installed near the Demilitarized zone aka DMZ.
The South has been loudly broadcasting into the North to try and cause unrest among the people. Now the North has said they have until 4:30amEST Saturday to half broadcasts or face military action.
What usually is a hollow threat is given new gravity after an exchange of fire over the DMZ occurred yesterday. Kim Jong Un has made it clear that the loudspeakers are a declaration of war and that his country is currently in a ‘quasi state of war.’
More from NBC News:
YEONCHEON VILLAGE, South Korea — There are a lot of reasons why the world’s most fortified border is scary, but what has really rattled North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are 11 loudspeaker installations hidden among the trees just south of the boundary.
The nuclear-armed North has condemned South Korean propaganda being blasted from the speakers as equivalent to a declaration of war.
t was this that triggered Thursday’s exchange of fire across the demilitarized zone, or DMZ, and Kim’s latest ultimatum — stop the broadcasts by 5 p.m. Saturday (4:30 a.m. ET) or face military action.
