The live-fire drill aimed at improving the capabilities of South Korean and U.S. forces to carry out combined operations.

A South Korean military officer told Yonhap news agency that the live-fire exercise was an opportunity to check the operation status of the two sides' equipment and exchange their military strategies.

The live-fire drill was part of the annual Foal Eagle exercise that began on March 1 and runs through April 30.

About 200,000 South Korean forces and 11,000 U.S. forces are participating in the Foal Eagle exercise that includes joint air, ground and naval training exercises.

Another set of joint military exercises, called the Key Resolve, was conducted between Feb. 27 and March 9, mainly involving computer simulations.
