Pyongyang, August 26 (KCNA) -- A target-striking contest of the special operation forces of the Korean People's Army (KPA) to occupy islands took place on the Day of Songun, the 57th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's start of the Songun revolutionary leadership.

Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK, guided the target-strike contest.

He was greeted by KPA Vice Marshal Ri Myong Su, chief of the General Staff of the KPA, Army General Ri Yong Gil, first vice-chief of the KPA General Staff and director of the General Operational Bureau, Army Col. General Pak Jong Chon, director of the Artillery Bureau of the KPA, and other commanding officers of the KPA at the drill ground.

The respected Supreme Commander heard a report on the program of the enemy target-striking contest at an observation post and issued an order to start the contest after going round the special operation forces which took up attack positions.

Airplanes which received an order for sortie ceaselessly hit hard the enemy targets.

And multiple-missile launchers of different calibers and self-propelled gun howitzers fired in salvo.

Shells hit the islands simulating Paekryong and Big Yonphyong islands.

A combat of the special operation forces to occupy the islands of the enemy started.

Combatants, who landed on enemy targets after dropping from light transports flying at a low altitude and infiltrated by stealth into the islands from underwater, rained fire at the enemy before they did not come to their senses.

Combatants who took rubber boats closed in upon the enemy camp and landed by surprise.

Combatants wiped out the desperate enemy with various combat methods.

Such enemy targets as the headquarters of the puppet 6th marine brigade and the headquarters of the unit for defending Yonphyong Island situated on Paekryong and Big Yonphyong Islands were enveloped in flames in a moment and shouts of hurrahs rocked heaven and earth.

Kim Jong Un expressed great satisfaction over the successful target-striking contest.

Saying that the officers and men of the special operation forces are in high spirits, he highly appreciated the realistic organization of battle and commanding of drill true to the Party's policy of bringing about a radical turn in training.

What he regarded to be good in this contest is that formalism has been overcome in training and it has been put on a diversified and multilateral basis, he said, stressing the need for the officers and men of the special operation forces to focus on improving the quality of training and strengthen drills of arms and special arms and coordinated drills.

He said that in the future, too, the KPA should organize more drills simulating real battle for rounding off coordination among all services and arms, remarkably strengthen the combat capability in order to prepare for any forms of operational fields and combat conditions, and wipe out the strongholds of aggression where the enemy are entrenched once an order of attack is issued.

He noted that KPA should firmly adhere to the ideological and moral qualities peculiar to our revolutionary armed forces, which no other country's army can have, and should think of mercilessly wiping out the enemy with arms only and occupying Seoul at one go and the southern half of Korea.

He underlined the need to positively arouse the officers and men to the struggle to attain the KPA's goal for army building.

After the target-striking contest, the chief of the KPA General Staff announced the standing of the contest. -0-
