DPRK military says plan to strike Guam to be ready by mid-Aug

PYONGYANG, Aug. 11- The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea
(DPRK) military has said that its plan to strike Guam with intermediate
missiles will be ready by mid-August and its implementation will depend on
a decision by DPRK top leader Kim Jong Un, the Korean Central News Agency
said Thursday.

General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the Strategic Force of the Korean
People’s Army (KPA), was quoted as saying in a statement that the Strategic
Force is considering “the plan for opening to the public the historic
enveloping fire at Guam, a practical action targeting the U.S. bases of
aggression.” “The Hwasong-12 rockets to be launched by the KPA will cross
the sky above Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi Prefectures of Japan. They will
fly 3,356.7 km for 1,065 seconds and hit the waters 30 to 40 km away from
Guam,” he said.The DPRK military said Wednesday it is “seriously examining
the plan for an enveloping strike at Guam through simultaneous fire of four
Hwasong-12 intermediate-range strategic ballistic rockets in order to
interdict the enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a
crucial warning to the U.S.”

The order was given by Kim Jong Un himself who said it is necessary to hit
the U.S. military “hardware” which are repeatedly threatening the DPRK with
B-1B strategic bombers and aircraft carriers, according to the KPA
statement.”KPA Strategic Force has through a statement of its spokesman
fully warned the U.S. against its all-round sanctions on the DPRK and moves
of maximizing military threats to it. But the U.S. president at a golf
links again let out a load of nonsense about ‘fire and fury,’ failing to
grasp the on-going grave situation. This is extremely getting on the nerves
of the infuriated Hwasong artillerymen of the KPA,” said the strategic
force commander.He said the KPA is “keeping close watch on the speech and
behavior of the U.S. officials.”-XINHUA
