Later the Korean Central News Agency reported that the republic’s army was developing a plan to launch missiles in Guam’s direction in order to demonstrate the possibility of making a preventive strike over US military facilities, including Andersen Ari Force Base where B-52 strategic bombers are located.
On Thursday, the Korean Central News Agency spread a more detailed report which said that development of a corresponding plan would be completed by mid-August. It said that four Hwasong-12 missiles had to fly about 3,400 kilometers, including in airspace above Japan’s Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi Prefectures and then fall into the water 30-40km away from Guam. According to Pyongyang, such actions are directed at restraining American powers in the Asian-Pacific Region.
