PYONGYANG, — North Korea has deployed some 300 multiple launch rocket systems along its southern border, putting Seoul within a striking distance, South Korea’s military told local media on Sunday.
North Korea has reportedly been stationing missile launchers along the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), a 2.5-mile-wide strip of land separating the two countries, since 2014.
"The new rockets will increase the number of MLRS and long-range artillery along the DMZ to over 600," a source told South Korea’s Yonhap news agency.
According to the agency’s information, the North could fire simultaneously some 9,000 rockets across the border. It cited military experts who said the South does not have anti-missile systems that can intercept these threats.
