South Korea holds live-fire drill simulating attack on nuclear site to ‘strongly warn’ North Korea

South Korea’s military conducted a live-fire exercise simulating an attack on a nuclear site, to “strongly warn” North Korea in response to the rogue nation’s apparent nuclear test, South Korean officials said early Monday.

A surface-to-surface missile and long-range air-to-ground missile “accurately struck” targets in the Sea of Japan, Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

Officials added that the target was set considering the distance to where the North’s test site was, and the exercise was aimed at practicing precision strikes, as well as cutting off reinforcements.
