On 26 December 2022, five North Korean drones flew into South Korean territory, including the capital Seoul, in the first such occurrence since 2017. The South Korean military deployed aircraft and fired approximately 100 warning shots toward the drones, but was unable to intercept them. The drones remained in South Korean territory for several hours. During the incident, South Korea’s Transportation Ministry suspended passenger flights arriving and departing from Incheon International Airport (RKSI/ICN) and Gimpo International Airport (RKSS/GMP) from 1322 until 1410 local time (0422-0510 UTC). Meanwhile, the South Korean military deployed several manned and unmanned surveillance aircraft across the Military Demarcation Line into North Korean territory. The military actions come amid heightened tensions between the two countries.
