S. Korean Troops Stage River Crossing Exercise
Pyongyang, December 19 (KCNA) -- The 20th motorized infantry division of the south Korean puppet army staged a large-scale river crossing exercise targeted against the north in the area along the River Namhan in Ryoju, Kyonggi Province on Wednesday.

Involved in the exercise were 500 armored vehicles, artillery pieces equipped with sensors, 800 trucks, at least 10,000 troops and others.

The warmongers set in motion offensive units, supported by the fire of helicopter gun ships, and conducted a coordinated operation with assault planes, whipping war hysteria.

As regards the saber rattling, they did not hide its purpose by asserting that "the river crossing operation was kicked off to rapidly break through the zone under guard and continue advancing into the depth of the enemy-controlled areas".
