The U.S. forces had ceased training at the Rodriguez Live Fire Complex in Pocheon after a missile shot from the facility had struck an unoccupied building on Dec. 30.

Local residents, who have been complaining about noise and safety issues, have launched a protest against the military training, as the U.S. military has conducted drills with heavy equipment including AH-64 Apache helicopters.
