On May 3 in the morning, a shootout occurred on the border between North and South Korea, as Reuters reported, citing the chief of staff of the South Korean army.
At 7:41 am local time, several shots were fired from the direction of North Korea in the direction of the South Korean guard post, which borders the DPRK. South Korea responded with two shots in the direction of North Korea. No one was injured in the incident. Tensions between the two countries intensified the day after North Korean leader Kim Jong-un made himself felt after an almost three-week absence from the public eye.
Recall that the last three weeks the media and politicians of South Korea, the USA, and Japan have been interested in Kim Jong-un's state of health. It was stated that the dictator was sick. Public concern about his health arose after he did not attend the celebration of the birthday of his grandfather, the founder of the DPRK, Kim Il Sung, on April 15. This date is considered very important for North Korea, and Kim Jong-un has always been involved in related events.
May 2, North Korean media published photos and a report on how Kim Jong-un visited the fertilizer plant, which is under construction. This was his first public appearance since April 11th.
