Fresh reports from the BBC indicate that the United States and South Korea conducted joint Military Drills in South Korean air space. US B-1B bombers -- along with South Korean F-15K fighter planes -- joined the operation. A war of words between the North Korean and Trump administrations in recent weeks alluded to the escalating tension between the two countries. The latest drills came in response to a series of nuclear and missile tests conducted by North Korea. It’s also believed that North Korean hackers stole a large cache of military documents from the South, as reported by South Korean lawmakers.

The recent hack has done nothing but heighten existing tension. Wartime contingency plans are prominent among the documents stolen.

Bomber combat jets took off from Guam
