Everything You Need To Know About Missile Launch: North Korea Says It Was Practice To Hit US Military Bases In Japan, Warns Of ‘Actual War’
On Sunday, North Korea launched four banned ballistic missiles that landed in the East Sea and landed 200 nautical miles from Japan’s coastline.
North Korea said their missile launches were training for a strike on U.S. bases in Japan on Tuesday.
From Yahoo News:
Kim Jong-Un gave the order for the drill to start, the North’s official Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.
“Feasting his eyes on the trails of ballistic rockets”, he praised the Hwasong artillery unit that carried it out, it said.
“The four ballistic rockets launched simultaneously are so accurate that they look like acrobatic flying corps in formation, he said,” the agency added, referring to Kim.
The military units involved are “tasked to strike the bases of the US imperialist aggressor forces in Japan in contingency”, KCNA said.
The Korean version of the KCNA report said the North’s missile launch demonstrated its readiness to “wipe out” enemy forces with a “merciless nuclear strike”.
A series of photographs published by the North’s Rodong Sinmun newspaper showed Kim watching the missiles rise into the air and another of him smiling gleefully, clapping with other officials.
