#BREAKING North Korea Again threatens to fire four missiles toward #Guam

SEOUL, Aug. 10 (Yonhap) — North Korea’s military on Thursday repeated its threat to attack Guam, saying it is considering a plan to fire four intermediate-range ballistic missiles around the home to several U.S. strategic bombers.

In a tit-for-tat of bellicose rhetoric, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said its strategic force is “seriously examining” the plan for an “enveloping strike” at Guam with four Hwasong-12 missiles “in order to interdict the enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a crucial warning to the U.S.”

It said in an English statement that the missiles will cross the sky above the Shimane, Hiroshima and Koichi prefectures of Japan and fly 3,356.7 kilometers and land 30 to 40 km away from Guam.

The North’s military will finalize the plan by mid-August and report it to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and await his order, the report said.
