North Korea Conducts Nuke Drill in Response to Planned US-South Korea Exercises

North Korea Conducts Nuke Drill in Response to Planned US-South Korea Exercises

Alwaght- North Korean nuclear units have simulated a “scorched-earth” nuclear strike on targets across neighboring South Korea in response to an announcement that the latter and its ally the US will hold military exercises soon. 

The state media reports spelled out in unusual detail how the North envisions a potential war, including countering any attack by striking the South with nuclear weapons, then sweeping in to occupy its territory, reported Reuters. 

“The KPA staged a tactical nuclear strike drill simulating scorched-earth strikes at major command centers and operational airfields of the ‘ROK’ military gangsters on Wednesday night,” the general staff of the North’s Korean People’s Army (KPA) said in a statement carried by KCNA news agency. ROK is the initials of South Korea’s official name, the Republic of Korea. 

Pyongyang fired two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea on Wednesday, South Korea’s military said, hours after the U.S. deployed B-1B bombers for allied air drills. 

The nuclear strike simulations and rocket firings have become a regular process for North Korea as the US ad its regional allies conduct drills they say serve to enhance combat readiness against Pyongyang. 

But North Korea argues that it is the opposite side that makes provocations with its exercises and strategic weapons deployment to the Korean Peninsula. 

In 2018, Pyongyang destroyed a nuclear test site as a display of good will and a trust-making step. But the US declined to ease sanctions on the country in a reciprocation, saying that it needed a full destruction of the nuclear program, something sent North Korean officials infuriated. 

As Washington continued its hostile moves, Pyongyang resumed its nuclear and missile tests.
