South Korea's military reported detecting indications of North Korea installing its own loudspeakers along their heavily fortified border. This development follows South Korea's resumption of anti-Pyongyang broadcasts, marking a return to Cold War-style psychological tactics amid escalating tensions.

In retaliation for North Korea's recent balloon campaign, which included sending over 1,000 balloons filled with trash and manure, South Korea activated its loudspeakers on Sunday. These broadcasts reportedly feature news, criticisms of North Korean governance, and South Korean pop music.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's powerful sister, Kim Yo Jong, issued a stark warning on Sunday, cautioning that South Korea would face a 'new response' from the North unless these broadcasts and the activities of anti-North Korean activists halted immediately.
