South Korea records jamming of GPS signals by DPRK for third day

DPRK has jammed GPS for the third day in a row in waters near South Korea's northwestern border islands.

This is reported by Yonhap.

The South Korean military detected jamming signals around 8 a.m. local time directed toward islands near the Northern Demarcation Line in the Yellow Sea, which is the de facto western maritime border between by two Koreas.

According to the authorities, this attempt did not interfere with military operations, although similar attempts the day before led to failures in the navigation systems of fishing boats and passenger ships in the waters.

The military also discovered GPS jamming on Thursday shortly after North Korea fired 18 cruise missiles toward the East Sea.

According to the science ministry, jamming signals, believed to be transmitted from the northern areas of Kangrin and Onjin, continued to be detected intermittently as of 5:50 a.m. Wednesday in border areas of South Korea.

The ministry said it has received 932 complaints related to GPS jamming attacks, but no damage has been reported so far.

As reported by Ukrinform, 29 In May, North Korea launched more than 150 balloons containing debris across the inter-Korean border.

Recently, the US and South Korea conducted joint exercises to counter potential North Korean attacks from jamming of the global positioning system (GPS) and other space threats.
