South Korea’s military is drawing up plans for a ‘surgical strike’ to take out Kim Jong-un’s missile and nuclear facilities if orders are given to remove the dictator.
Taurus cruise missiles fired from F-15 fighters would be used to destroy the facilities if President Moon Jae-in gives the go ahead in an emergency, it is claimed.
The contingency measure would be initiated by the President’s Special Forces, according to reports by Seoul newspaper Munwha Ilbo.
It comes just days after North Korea carried out another test launch of its Hwasong-14 missile and amid heightened tensions between North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-un and the US.
According to reports the project is being overseen by South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Ministry of National Defense.
It comes after two US officials said North Korea’s latest test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) has shown that Pyongyang now may be able to reach most of the continental United States.
The assessment, which the officials discussed on condition of anonymity, underscored the growing threat posed by Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programmes, and could add pressure on President Donald Trump’s administration to respond.
