North Korea’s military warned Sunday that it will retaliate if an upcoming South Korean firing drill violates the North’s territorial waters.

A notice carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency warned residents of five islands near the disputed border in the Yellow Sea to evacuate before 9 AM Monday morning. An announcer on a radio broadcast from Pyongyang said there will be an immediate and merciless counter-attack if even a “single column of water” is monitored in North Korean waters during the drill.
