South Korea has dropped bombs on Tuesday near its border with North Korea in response to the latest missile fire.
Dailycaller.com reported: North Korea fired a ballistic missile — believed by some to be the Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missile first tested in May — over Japan early Tuesday morning, raising alarms in the island nation.
In the wake of this aggressive new test, South Korean President Moon Jae-in ordered a show of “overwhelming force” against North Korea, according to Yonhap News Agency.
Shortly thereafter, the South Korean Air Force staged a live-fire drill in which it practiced bombing the North Korean leadership out of existence.
Four F-15K fighters dropped eight MK 84 bombs — 2,000-pound bombs designed to penetrate hardened targets — on a mock target at the Taebaek Pilsung Firing Range in Gangwon Province. South Korea said the drill was meant to demonstrate that it is prepared to overwhelm its hostile northern neighbor.
All eight bombs reportedly hit their targets, demonstrating a “strong capability to punish” North Korea in an attack. “The drill reconfirmed South Korea Air Force capability to destroy the enemy’s leadership in cases of emergency,” a South Korean Ministry of National Defense spokesman explained to CNN.
The South also released footage of its recent missile tests involving two new missiles with ranges between 300 and 500 miles, the latter being able to hit targets across the North. The longer-range missiles will soon be operationally deployed, enhancing South Korea’s ability to carry out the Korea Massive Punishment and Retaliation strategy in the event of an attack.
