The South Korean military has conducted a live-fire drill in the Yellow Sea to stay ready to defend five frontline islands.

During the drill, the Marine’s Sixth Brigade in Baengnyeong Island and a unit stationed in Yeonpyeong Island fired 200 artillery rounds from K-9 self-propelled howitzers and Vulcan canons using Cobra helicopters.

The military also said it launched a Spike surface-to-surface missile that precisely hit its target.
