As tensions continue between North Korea and the United States, The US has reportedly deployed attack drones to South Korea, according to a U.S. military spokesman. This latest move comes only days after the deployment of an advanced anti-missile system to counter “continued provocative actions” by isolated North Korea. The report indicates that these drones are part of a broader plan to deploy attack drones with every division in the U.S. Army, the spokesman said. “The
UAS adds significant intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capability to U.S. Forces Korea and our ROK partners,” United States Forces Korea spokesman Christopher Bush said in a statement. As of now, there is no specifics on any estimated time of arrival for these drones to arrive in South Korea. This latest military move follows North Korea’s latest move of conducting two nuclear tests and a string of missile tests since the beginning of last year, ignoring the recent imposition of new U.N. sanctions.
