South Korean and U.S. forces Thursday held their largest-ever live-fire exercises involving thousands of troops and hundreds of military vehicles, simulating a "full-scale attack" from North Korea, South Korea's defense ministry said. The five-day exercise kicked off in Pocheon near the border with the North and was joined by some 2,500 troops from the South and the United States, with multiple tanks, howitzers and fighter jets mobilized, the ministry said. U.S. and South Korean forces have been carrying out various types of military training, including air and sea drills involving American B-1B bombers in recent months after diplomatic efforts and COVID-19 restrictions led to many drills being scaled back.
