Pyongyang, November 7 (KCNA) -- A report of the General Staff of the Korean People's Army on its military operations corresponding to the Vigilant Storm, the U.S.-south Korea combined air drill, was issued.

The full text is as follows:

The serious situation prevailing on the Korean peninsula due to the reckless military hysteria of the U.S. and south Korea is now moving toward the more unstable confrontation.

Vigilant Storm, the largest-ever U.S.-south Korea combined air drill, was staged in south Korea from Oct. 31 to Nov. 5 with hundreds of fighters of different missions involved, including nuclear strategic bombers.

The large-scale combined air drill is, in fact, an open provocation aimed at intentionally escalating the tension in the region and a dangerous war drill of very high aggressive nature directly targeting the DPRK.

Intolerable and unpardonable are all the recent challenging moves of the U.S. and south Korea staging military drills for aggression on a large scale.

In order to demonstrate the thoroughgoing and resolute will to counter the grave situation and the clear self-confidence in the military capabilities of the armed forces of the DPRK and to inspire the officers and men of the Korean People's Army, filled with their resolute retaliatory will, with the conviction of sure victory, the General Staff of the KPA conducted the following corresponding military operations from Nov. 2 to 5:

Simulating the strike on the enemy's air force base in the morning of the first day of the operations, missile units in North Phyongan Province fired four tactical ballistic missiles loaded with dispersion warheads and underground infiltration warheads at a desert island off the West Sea Barrage, and in the morning and afternoon the anti-aircraft missile units of the air force on the east and west coastal areas fired 23 ground-to-air missiles while staging an exercise to annihilate air targets at different altitudes and distances.

Claiming that a DPRK's missile dropped near the "territorial waters" of south Korea that afternoon, the enemy fired in return air-to-surface guided missiles and gliding guided bomb at the open sea of the DPRK side. Corresponding to this rash act, the KPA fired two strategic cruise missiles with the shooting range of 590.5 km at the open sea around 80 km off the coast of Ulsan City of south Korea (35°29′51.6" latitude and 130°19′39.6" longitude) from North Hamgyong Province.

At the request of the Academy of Defence Science on the second day of the operations, the KPA conducted important test-fire of ballistic missile to verify the movement reliability of a special functional warhead paralyzing the operation command system of the enemy. And it fired five super-large multiple launch missiles and tactical ballistic missiles of various missions and 46 long-range multiple launch missiles into the East Sea as part of its counteraction to smash the enemies' persistent war hysteria.

On the third day of the operations, a large-scale all-out combat sortie operation of the air force with 500 fighters of various missions involved was conducted for 3 hours and 47 minutes in order to show the will to counter the combined air drill of the enemy.

Simulating a strike on the enemy's air force base on the fourth day of the operations, the KPA fired again two tactical ballistic missiles loaded with dispersion warheads and two super-large multiple launch missiles at a desert island off the West Sea Barrage.

All the corresponding military operations have successfully achieved the planned purposes and the high performance of the KPA operations has been satisfactorily assessed.

Through the operations, the armed forces of the DPRK fully responded to the enemy's combined air drill, increased its self-confidence in neutralizing the "theory of superiority" of the enemy air force, perfectly confirmed the confident military posture and capability of the KPA and further hardened its absolute corresponding will.

The recent corresponding military operations by the KPA are a clear answer of the DPRK that the more persistently the enemies' provocative military moves continue, the more thoroughly and mercilessly the KPA will counter them. This is the principle and direction of action of the DPRK's armed forces in the future, too.

The KPA General Staff once again clarifies that it will continue to correspond with all the anti-DPRK war drills of the enemy with the sustained, resolute and overwhelming practical military measures. -0-
