S. Korean Puppet Forces Perpetrate Largest-ever Shelling Provocation against DPRK

 Pyongyang, August 18 (KCNA) -- Hooligans of the south Korean military hell-bent on escalating confrontation with the compatriots in the north launched a mad-cap shelling provocation in all sectors of the front at 16:34 on Thursday.
    Involved in the largest-ever shelling provocation were more than 300 various type artillery pieces of 49 battalions under the first and third field corps of the puppet army, radars for detecting artillery positions and spy drones.
    The shelling drill was staged under the simulated conditions of an armed clash between the north and the south. They struck the areas of forces of the north by mobilizing some artillery subunits of the puppet army and radars for detecting artillery positions before escalating firepower strike by reinforcing artillery forces and repeated strikes after spy drone's real-time confirmation of the situation.
    They are openly blustering that the largest-ever shelling drill staged in all sectors of the front at a time when military tensions are increasing on the Korean peninsula was aimed to ratchet up the "psychological pressure on the north" to the maximum by demonstrating the "will to counter" any military action of the north and help the artillery units of the puppet army deployed in the areas along the military demarcation line round off the procedures and methods of their artillery strike against the north any time.
    What should not be overlooked is that the puppet forces opened to public the shelling drill and are claiming that it demonstrated their "will to cope with" the "mine explosion" and "shelling provocation" in August last year.
    The puppet forces got frantic with various military provocations in the past, seized with war fever against the north. But it is the first time that they mobilized a lot of artillery units in all sectors of the front, not some corps or units in an area, to stage such shelling drill.
    The puppet forces are driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the worst phase by staging the largest-ever shelling drill in all sectors of the front ahead of Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military drills slated to kick off on Aug. 22.
    The reality again proves that the war maniacs of the south Korean puppet military are making desperate efforts to preempt a north-targeted strike any moment.
    The reckless military moves of the puppet forces are lashing the service personnel and people of the DPRK into the greatest fury.
    The warmongers will have to pay dearly for their reckless military provocations. -0
