Spokesman for KPA General Staff Issues Statement


Pyongyang, December 5 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army issued the following statement on Monday:

From 08:30 to 15:50 on December 5, dozens of projectiles supposed to be the shells of multiple rocket launchers were fired towards the southeast direction from somewhere around Iphyong-ri, Cholwon County of south Kangwon Province of the enemy side.

The KPA General Staff issued an urgent order to the frontline units of the KPA to keep the enemy under observation and get fully ready for rapid counterattack and to the units on the eastern and western fronts to fire more than 130 naval live-shells for "tit for tat" warning between 15:00 and 16:00.

The KPA General Staff makes it clear once again that it will settle accounts with all provocative actions of the enemy one by one and will always counter them with staunch and overwhelming military action.

The enemy side would be well advised to immediately stop their military action of escalating tension in the immediate vicinity of the front where it is within eyeshot.

We severely warn the enemy side to be prudent, not kindling the flame of escalation of tension unnecessary in the area around the front.
