SEOUL - South Korea has agreed to purchase precision-guided missiles from an Israeli company as part of efforts to increase security near a tense border with North Korea off the west coast, South Korean media reported on Tuesday.

Yonhap news agency quoted a military source as saying Seoul had recently agreed to buy Spike NLOS missiles, and that they should be deployed late next year.

About 50 missiles will be placed on Baengnyeong and Yeonpyeong islands in the Yellow Sea, the source added.

Four South Koreans were killed last November when the North shelled Yeonpyeong in the first such attack on a civilian location on South Korean soil.
