“The Korea People’s Army top command declares that all artillery troops including strategic rocket units and long-range artillery units are to be placed under class-A combat readiness,” the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.
The announcement came as images were released showing a new round of military exercises by the isolated state.
The still photographs show what appears to be a sea-borne assault using hovercraft and an artillery drill using multiple rocket launchers – none of which would have the capacity to reach more than a dozen or so miles.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un is pictured visiting troops and watching the exercise from a vantage point above the unidentified beach on the country’s east coast.
