Pyongyang, October 21 (KCNA) -- Recorded in the history of Japan's aggression on Korea is a massive "punitive" attack in Jiandao in the year of Kyongsin (1920).

The massive "punitive" attack clearly showed that the Japanese imperialists are butchers with mediaeval brutality and Samurai belligerence as their inveterate nature.

At that time, tens of thousands of Koreans went across the Tuman River in a year to emigrate to Jiandao of China after losing their livelihood due to the Japanese imperialists' colonial rule. Anti-Japanese sentiment was growing high among them and the independence army movement based in this area got intensified.

So, the Japanese imperialists ran amuck to suppress such movement. After their defeat at Qingshanli and Fengwudong battles, they planned a massive "punitive" attack in Jiandao in an attempt to pay out for the defeat and wipe away the independence army movement and all other anti-Japanese struggles of the Korean people.

In October 1920 they launched the attack and massacred more than 1 800 Koreans in one week, including over 300 in Wangqingmen and 409 in Qingshanli of Helong County. The Japanese imperialist butchers reduced all the Korean villages into ashes and shot, beat, bayoneted and burned to death all Korean residents irrespective of sex and age.

As a result, at least 30 000 Koreans were killed, 6 000-odd houses were consumed and more than 100 000 Korean people lost their families, houses and properties during the "punitive" attack in Jiandao.

The Korean people will never forget the crime committed by the Japanese imperialists in Jiandao but surely force them to pay dearly for it. -0-
