Pyongyang, June 11 (KCNA) -- The south Korean warmongers tried to capture fishing boats of the DPRK in the open sea beyond the East Sea of Korea at about 3 a.m. on June 8.
At that time the two fishing
boats were finding the net which had been cut away during the fishing.
The south Korean puppet navy warship Kyongbuk secretly appeared near the
fishing boats and tried to stop them.
When the fishermen of
the DPRK strongly resisted as it was clear that the south Korean
bandit-like naval forces were attempting to seize them, they called even
a copter and blinded the fishermen by exploding smoke grenades in a bid
to block their way. 30 minutes later, another south Korean puppet navy
warship Andong join in the operation.
Though the fishermen
notified them repeatedly that their boats were returning to their port
after fishing operation, the puppet forces attempted to abduct the
fishermen at any cost by letting high-speed boats encircle the fishing
boats and the copter fly 15 to 20 meters above the sea surface and by
firing hundreds of automatic rifle bullets over 20 times.
end, they infiltrated even the third warship of the puppet navy in a
bid to siege our fishing boats on the three sides and realize their
criminal attempt at any cost.
As our fishermen shouted that the
brigandish act by the puppet forces was reported to the homeland and the
People's Army was coming to save them, while fighting it out against
the barbarous military violence by the puppet military gangster, they
took to flight.
As their atrocities sparked off the resentment
of all fellow countrymen, the south Korean puppet forces went so
impudent as to spread a false story that a fishing boat of the north
crossed over the extension of the Military Demarcation Line in the
waters off Kojin, Kosong of Kangwon Province due to navigation error,
and that they "made sure that the fishing boat went back to the north
from the humanitarian view point" at around 07:10 a.m. as the fishermen
were confirmed to have had no intention to defect to the south.
It is none other than the Park Geun Hye group of traitors which
unhesitatingly commit ferocious gangster-like act to take to south Korea
the fishermen of the north who were conducting peaceful fishing
operation in the sea in the wake of the allurement of DPRK citizens in
broad daylight in a third country.
The south Korean puppet
forces have escalated confrontation with fellow countrymen in the waters
of the East Sea of Korea this time, not content with escalating
military provocations in the ground, seas and air including the areas
along the Military Demarcation Line and in the southwestern hotspot
waters in a bid to push the north-south relations to the phase of
confrontation and conflict. Their hair-raising atrocities can never be
