North Korea threatens with missile strike at U.S. military base on Guam


According to Yonhap news agency, on Wednesday North Korea’s military announced that it is considering missile strikes near Guam, home to several U.S. strategic bombers.

According to the agency, the North Korea‘s Strategic Forces is “now carefully examining the operational plan for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12.”

The statement of the military was published a few hours after the U.S. president Donald Trump promised “fire and fury” if North Korea doesn’t cease its threats towards the USA.

Formally, Guam doesn’t belong to the USA, but is considered its property. It bears major U.S. military bases, including the Anderson Air Force Base, where U.S. strategic bombers are based.
