The image emerged online after new South Korean President Moon Jae-in said there was a “high possibility” of war with the hermit state as he warned the recent missile launch was a serious threat to global peace.

Mr Moon said the country’s military was ready and capable of striking back should the North attack.

And today a picture of what appears to be military vehicles, emblazoned with South Korea flags, heading towards North Korea surfaced on Twitter.

The freelance investigative journalist who posted the picture said: ”Today, S Korea military vehicles spotted around Seoul heading North, hard to say if there were any Air Def system.”

North Korea and the rich, democratic South are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, not a peace treaty.

The North defends its weapons programmes as necessary to counter US hostility.

And Kim Jong-un has made no secret of the fact that it is working to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of striking the US mainland and has ignored calls to rein in its nuclear and missile programmes, even from China, its lone major ally.

President Moon said: “The reality is that there is a high possibility of a military conflict at the NLL (Northern Limit Line) and military demarcation line.
