A spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA) issued the following statement on Oct. 14:
According to a report on enemy movements in the front, the south Korean army conducted an artillery fire for about 10 hours near the forward defence area of the KPA Fifth Corps on Oct. 13.
Taking a serious note of this provocative action by the south Korean military in the frontline area, we took strong military countermeasures.
The KPA sends a stern warning to the south Korean military inciting military tension in the frontline area with reckless action.
A spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA) issued the following statement on Saturday:
The enemy's artillery fire was acquired in the area of Cholwon County of south Kangwon Province, the forward area of the 5th Corps of our forces, at around 9:45 on October 14 following October 13.
To cope with the acquired movement of the enemy, the KPA General Staff made units of the eastern and western sectors of the front conduct warning fires of multiple rocket launchers into the East Sea and West Sea of Korea in the depth areas of our forces corresponding to the spot where the movement of the enemy was acquired between 17:00 and 20:00 on October 14 as part of countermeasures.
The counter-demonstration fire conducted by the frontline units of our forces in the afternoon of October 14 is aimed at sending another clear warning to the deliberate repeated provocation by the enemies in the front areas.
In the future, too, our army will never allow any provocation by the enemies escalating the military tension on the Korean Peninsula but take thorough and overwhelming military countermeasures.
The south Korean army would be well advised to stop at once its reckless provocation inciting the military tension in the front areas.
A spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA) issued the following statement on Oct. 19:
Following on October 13 and 14, the enemies committed another military provocation inciting the DPRK in the area along the Military Demarcation Line on Oct. 18.
They fired dozens of shells of multiple rocket launchers in the forefront area of Cholwon County, South Kangwon Province from 9:55 to 17:22 on Oct. 18.
The situation on the Korean peninsula is getting worse due to the enemies' repeated military provocations in the forefront area.
The KPA General Staff took a specially serious note of the provocative moves committed at a time when "Hoguk 22", the enemy's war drill against the north, is going on in a frantic manner. In order to send a serious warning once again, it made sure that KPA units on the east and west fronts conducted a threatening, warning fire toward the east and west seas in the night of Oct. 18, as a powerful military countermeasure.
The enemies should immediately stop the reckless and inciting provocations escalating the military tension in the forefront area.
A spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army issued the following statement on Oct. 19:
Enemies shot over 10 shells of multiple rocket launchers in the frontline zone off the foremost line occupied by the 5th Army Corps of the KPA between around 8:27 to 9:40 Wednesday morning in another military provocation.
The enemies' successive military provocations in frontline areas must be stopped right now.
The KPA General Staff ordered eastern and western frontline units of the KPA to open a threatening, warning fire once again into the East and West Seas in response to the enemies' movement observed in the morning.
Our Army strongly warns the enemy forces to immediately stop the highly irritating provocative act in the frontline areas.
A spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA) issued the following statement on Oct. 24:
An escort ship of the 2nd Fleet of the puppet south Korean navy invaded the Military Demarcation Line under the control of the Korean People's Army on the sea 2.5 to 5 km in the waters 20 km northwest of Paekryong Island at around 3:50 on Monday to open "warning fire" on the excuse of controlling an unidentified ship.
The KPA General Staff ordered the coastal defence units on the western front to keep strict monitoring and counteraction readiness and made sure they took an initial countermeasure to powerfully expel the enemy warship by firing 10 shells of multiple rocket launchers toward the territorial waters, where naval enemy movement was detected, at 5:15.
The KPA opened 10 threatening and warning fires in the direction of 270 degrees of firing azimuth from the area of Ryongyon County at 5:15 on October 24.
The KPA General Staff once again sends a grave warning to the enemies who made even naval intrusion in the wake of such provocations as the recent artillery firing and loudspeaker broadcasting on the ground front.
