South Korea is preparing to establish a special unit to strike key strategic targets in North Korea, a military officer said in a parliamentary audit on Wednesday.
Lt. Gen. Chang Kyung-suk of the Special Warfare Command told lawmakers that "strategic targets" include nuclear weapons and long-range missile sites.
There are six brigades under the Special Warfare Command, and it is preparing to turn one of them into a special unit that can carry out independent operations to strike key strategic targets.
"We have North Korean regions in mind as targets of our operations," Chang added.
