South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said the soldier was shot by North Korean troops as he fled across the Military Demarcation Line from the northern side of Panmunjeom at 3:31 p.m. Monday.

The soldier, who was wounded in the elbow and shoulder, was taken to a South Korean hospital and treated for his injuries.

It said there was no exchange of gunfire between the two sides in 250-kilometer-long, 4-km-wide DMZ, which is fortified with land mines, fences and guard posts.

South Korean officials detected signs recently that North Korea's military was preparing for winter drills.

"Currently, there are no unusual signs in the North Korean military, but we are increasing alertness against the possibility of North Korean provocations", officials told Yonhap News Agency.
