North Korean leader Kim Jong-un attended a military drill on Wednesday involving unmanned drones and interceptor missiles, the renegade country's state media claimed. Kim was quoted as confirming that the North Korean army is able to launch "precision strikes against any enemy target."
The report came a day after the North warned it will take military action against further deployment of American B-52 bombers over South Korea after the aircraft participated in joint Seoul-Washington military drills this week.
Kim watched an interceptor hit a mock Tomahawk cruise missile and expressed satisfaction saying the target was "accurately hit with a single shot," the official KCNA news agency claimed. He ordered troops to "destroy" all military and government targets in South Korea, as well as U.S. facilities should the "enemies even flinch."
Meanwhile, the conservative activist group Right Korea said Wednesday that it received a fax from a North Korean committee, ordering North Koreans to "rise up" against the joint South Korea-U.S. military drills.
