US Military Issues Alert After North Korean Propaganda Leaflets Found on Bases


US Forces Korea issued an alert Thursday calling on service members to "be aware" of North Korean propaganda after a "significant number" of leaflets were found on several US military bases in South Korea, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

 

According to Stars & Stripes, propaganda flyers were discovered after a North Korean soldier defected to South Korea through the heavily fortified demilitarized zone, the border that divides the two Koreas.

 

"Given the number of foreign nationals with access to our military installations via employment, sponsorship, and partnership programs, the potential for insider threats is always a reality," the alert, which was posted to the US Forces Korea's Facebook page, reads. "It is essential for our personnel to report all propaganda and suspicious individuals to the appropriate authorities to help mitigate potential threats."

 

"Personnel distributing these items seek to disrupt our operations and degrade our readiness to FIGHT TONIGHT!" it added.
