Pyongyang has blamed the escalation on Seoul's inability to prevent defectors from flying anti-regime propaganda over the border. But it is likely that this is just being used as an excuse.

Kim Jong-un has failed to bring economic prosperity to his people and strict international sanctions remain in place. There are also persistent rumours that Covid-19 has affected rural parts of the country. Giving North Koreans a mutual enemy may help focus their attention elsewhere. Pyongyang is also angry at Seoul for not challenging Washington's insistence that strict sanctions should remain in place and for not pursuing inter-Korean projects which would have breached both UN and US sanctions.

It should resolve the issues between the two peninsulas by peace talks and bring the normalcy.
