In connection with the North Korean incident that occurred on New Year’s Day, it is reported that North Korea has issued the No. It is said that North Korea secured new recruits from the North Korean defector on the day of the incident and is currently investigating.

On the 6th, Daily NK, an insider inside North Korea, said, “Late night on the 1st, personnel working at the periscope (periscope) guard post Choe Jeon-yeon (forward) first discovered that a person had crossed over from South Korea (South Korea). It was reported to the Supreme Command through wireless communication.”

The radio network directly communicated to the Supreme Commander (Chairman Kim Jong-un), which exists only in the military and division-level command units, can normally transmit only from the upper part (main pole) to the lower part (subordinate pole, 從屬極). is said to be possible.

Given this, the fact that the 1st Corps command department reported the incident directly to the Supreme Commander can be interpreted as proof that North Korea has dealt with the matter with that much urgency.

The source continued, “After the incident was reported, the Operations Bureau of the General Staff ordered the division in the garrison area to issue the No.

As a result, live ammunition was supplied to the divisions stationed in the area where the North Korean incident occurred, and the soldiers were said to have maintained their working posture while wearing combat uniforms with 30 rounds of ammunition for each individual.

Another source said, “We mobilized the provincial emergency quarantine command department to blockade and disinfect the outpost where the incident occurred and the nearby military residence area,” said the source. did not,” he explained.

Meanwhile, the North Korean defector was briefly detained by the 1st corps security guard brigade management unit, but is now said to be isolated at the provincial security office base in Wonsan, Gangwon-do.

Currently, the Central National Security Agency’s investigation team is dispatched to Wonsan to investigate the North Korean defectors. After monitoring the North Korean defector’s condition for about fifteen days, if it is judged that there will be no problems with the quarantine, the agency will transfer it to South Pyongan Province for further interrogation. plans, the source said.

In the midst of this, unlike the case of the North Korean incident in Kaesong that occurred in July 2020, this time, it is not disclosed and is handling the matter in secret.

In fact, at the time of the North Korean defection incident in Kaesong, North Korean state media such as the Korean Central News Agency reported that “an emergency incident occurred in Kaesong City where a South Korean fugitive, suspected of being infected with a malicious virus (COVID-19), illegally crossed the demarcation line and returned home after three years.” has been reported

The media also revealed that Chairman Kim took measures to completely block off Kaesong by urgently convening an emergency expansion meeting of the Politburo of the Party Central Committee.

However, North Korea has not reported on the North Korean incident, and has not responded to any notice sent by the South Korean military to North Korea.

Regarding this, the source said, “Only those who are stationed in the area where (North Korean defectors) have crossed, the private residences of the soldiers, and those related to the Security Council and those around them know about it, and they are cracking down on them now.”

He continued, “In the commemorative year of the 110th anniversary of the Sun Day (Kim Il-sung’s birthday) and the 80th anniversary of the Gwangmyeongseongjeol (Kim Jong-il’s birthday), the executives have had incidents from the beginning of the new year on the anniversary of the Marshal’s (Kim Jong-un’s) birthday (January 8). He said, “I wonder if I can make a loud noise about what happened, so I’m just saying it’s going to pass quietly,” he added.
