Tuesday, North Korea ordered strategic long-range artillery units to be combat ready.
Reuters reports that the North’s KCNA news agency said:
“From this moment, the Supreme Command of the Korean People’s Army will be putting into combat duty posture No. 1 all field artillery units, including long-range artillery units and strategic rocket units, that will target all enemy objects in U.S. invasionary bases on its mainland, Hawaii and Guam.”
This comes after repeated warnings from North Korea on the annual joint military drills conducted by South Korea and the United States.
North Korea has recently said that it has ended the armistice that ended the Korean War.
