South Korea’s Military has declared the country’s highest state of alert for October 22nd, amid fears of an attack by the DPRK. It comes as DPRK defectors and human rights groups say they’ll drop thousands of leaflets inside the DPRK.

South Korea’s Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin has warned the army to be fully prepared for future attacks from the DPRK. The Ministry of National Defense has deployed extra weapons in the country’s Imjingak region.

On Friday, DPRK news agencies said there would be a military response if the leaflet drop went ahead. But South Korean media says the plan to send the leaflets across the border using balloons will not be cancelled.
