S. Korea to deploy fighter jets if North Korea provokes in Yellow Sea

By Sam Kim
SEOUL, June 3 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will not refrain from launching a fleet of advanced fighter jets to retaliate against North Korea if the communist neighbor provokes an armed conflict along their western sea border, its Air Force said Wednesday.

Tension runs high in the Yellow Sea after North Korea warned last week it will not guarantee the safety of U.S. and South Korean naval vessels operating near the Northern Limit Line (NLL).
