North Korea is planning to launch missiles at a US territory by mid-August.
Pyongyang’s military is developing an “operational plan” to strike areas around Guam using medium-to-long range ballistic missiles, according to state-run KCNA news agency.
General Kim Rak Gyom commander of the Strategic Force of the Korean People’s Army, released a statement revealing the rogue nation’s intent to bomb military targets on Guam.
He said: “As already clarified, the Strategic Force of the KPA is seriously examining the plan for an enveloping strike at Guam.
“This will be done through simultaneous fire of four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range strategic ballistic rockets in order to interdict the enemy forces on major military bases and signal a crucial warning to the US."
He said: “Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him. This is the the judgement made by the service personnel of the KPA Strategic Force.
“The military action the KPA is about to take will be an effective remedy for restraining the frantic moves of the US in the southern part of the Korean peninsula and its vicinity.”
Guam’s governor, Eddie Baza Calvo, aimed to reassure islanders that there would be no threat level change, despite Pyongyang’s consistent threats.
