    Video footage showing what exactly happened when North Korean troops opened fire as one of their men tried to cross over to the South through the Joint Security Area was unveiled.
    UN command investigators say North Korea clearly violated the armistice agreement in the process twice during the pursuit.
    Kim Hyun-bin has the latest from the defense ministry
    The United Nations Command on Wednesday released a video showing a North Korean soldier defecting to the South through the Joint Security Area of Panmunjeom last Monday.
    The video shows the defector was using a jeep for his escape until it became stuck in a drainage ditch. As the defector got out of the jeep and started sprinting towards the Military Demarcation Line separating the two Koreas, four North Korean soldiers opened fire at him. Dozens of rounds were fired with several bullets hitting the defector.
    The footage also shows one North Korean soldier crossing the military demarcation line for a few seconds during the pursuit. Soon after crossing the MDL, the soldier returns to the north side of the border.
    The defector was wounded and fell unconscious on the southern side of the border. Three South Korean soldiers crawled towards him and dragged him to safety.
    The UNC Special Investigation Team said that the investigation results show that North Korea violated the UN Armistice Agreement twice during the pursuit.
    "The key findings of the special investigation team indicate that the KPA violated the Armistice Agreement by... one firing weapons across the MDL, two by actually crossing the MDL temporarily."
    The UNC notified North Korea of these violations at the JSA on Wednesday through the normal communications channel in Panmunjeom, and requested a meeting to discuss the results of the investigation and measures to prevent future violations.
    The UNC Special Investigation Team said on Wednesday the investigation team was made up of personnel from Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and the United States. Members from Sweden and Switzerland of the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission also observed the process.

    what if the north-korean-army who accidentally trespassing the DMZ keep chasing the defector who is wounded to defect and live freely together in south korea

    the world misunderstood, the NK soldier crossing the line wanted to defect too. ..But on a second thought, his family was still in NK, didn't want them sent to labour camp for his defection. So he turned back.

    I was at DMZ. It was sheer bravery of the soldier to run into S Korea defying the most heavily guarded zone. Good luck to him.

      Eric Ling I thought it was the most guarded border in the world thats all, I would at least expect a guard nearby?

    • Eric Ling
      Eric Ling Year ago

      Dunno, I imagine they have more troops there when they have the tourists viewing the area, not sure that they actively guard that specific point regularly otherwise. I mean it is technically a hostile border so they'd probably try to keep the tension low most of the time there if they can.
      I mean can you imagine if they did have troops there that fired back at the dudes shooting him? It might be considered the restart of the war.

      Eric Ling no footage of evacuation or anyone around, weird

    • Eric Ling
      Eric Ling Year ago

      They might have evacuated in case he was some sort of suicide bomber car since they saw it coming from a good distance away. Though I'm not sure why they didn't have a few sharpshooters that would have shot back at the guys that shot and ran over the border. Then again they don't really want to start a war in that way I guess. Though they might consider making it a part of the agreement in the future after this incident.

      ᏕN͟ᎾᎳ๏ᏞᎥ͟ᎾN because North Korea is an unstable and uneducated country. South Korea is the exact opposite. Firing at the other soldier would have been inhumane and could have started the way up again

    North Korean defector: Shit, the wheel fell off!
    North Korean soldiers: Woah, what luck!
    The rest of the world: Well, somethings/brands suck more than what's made in China.

    Kim Jong Un addressing the Nation: Haha, our secret intelligence actually sabotaged the jeep!
    North Koreans officials: We have a secret intelligence!?
    - Btw the North Koreans broke several laws...
    1) Shooting across the border
    2) Trespassing by crossing the border (for the soldiers, not the defector)
    Also, there was a north korean museum nearby filled with guards who went after the defector after they heard the call. And they chased him on foot, no one took a jeep! Oh, wait the defector took the only jeep 😂

    More updates: The defector survived. South Korean soldiers crawled to him and pulled him back into South Korea. He underwent treatments and the doctors found out that he had Hepatitis and nearly every parasite known to man in his body 😔

    That brave, courageous man. I admire you. Welcome to the free world. Have a happy and speedy recovery.

    • ThatDutchguy
      ThatDutchguy Year ago

      Bent Romnes Some said that about Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, both Bush Sr and Jr, Bill Clinton and the current one Trump.
      I might agree with a few of those, still, if a US soldier in the past and the present would defect or abandon his/her post and oath, he/she is a traitor, a coward, a worm.
      Don't get me wrong, I'd encourage that soldier to defect, but I'd hold them in contempt if he/she actually does, still if it's in my governments advantage i'd do everything to get them to abandon their post, betray their people and country, but it would be hypocritical of me to act like i approve of their action.
      If one of my colleague's suddenly turnout to want to defect or abandoned his/her post, I'd shoot him/her in a split second without blinking an eye. (I really wouldn't care what reason they would have had or to whom they were defecting)

    • Bent Romnes

      Kim is a traitor and a worm to his people.and his army of soldiers.

    • ThatDutchguy
      ThatDutchguy Year ago

      Bent Romnes Desperate is still my description as a whole for the man's flight. I'm no fan of the Kim Dynastie, in my humble opinion all 3 generations of that Hermit Kingdom's leaders are psychopathic megalomaniac's with a fondness of dividing out a draconian style of what passes for "justice" in North-Korea.
      But, a soldier who has sworn an oath to his country and people, one that stands between them and in this case their sworn enemies abandoning his post, deserting his people, country and more importantly colleagues is not described as brave, heroic or courageous.
      He's disgraced his uniform, his oath, making the man a coward and a traitor, i might not like the regime he's under or its leaders, infact i regards them as previously stated psychopathic and draconian in nature, but to abandon one's colleagues, people and country to defect to its enemies i personally loath a person like that, he's a worm.
      There are enough countries that would describe an American soldier defecting to its enemies as brave and courageous, infact it's happened, they too are cowards and a disgrace to their uniform, traitors to their people.
      Sure it's in our favour now in this case,....but it doesn't relieve him of these descriptions, to me, he's the lowest form of life.

He wasn't former NSA EITHER, and he never appeared on TV, CBS etc telling what he did. Why not because according to your ignorant ass, NSA DOESNT APPEAER IN PUBLIC TO SAY WHAT THEY DID. YOU ARE INVENTING YOUR OWN UNREALITY IDIOT.
