Kim Jong Un Inspects Island Defence Detachments of KPA
| Pyongyang, March 7 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Marshal Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission, on Thursday inspected again the Jangjae Islet Defence Detachment and Mu Islet Hero Defence Detachment located in the biggest hotspot in the southernmost part of the southwestern sector of the front.
The first leg of his inspection was the Jangjae Islet Defence Detachment near from Taeyonphyong Island.
He went round soldiers' bed room and education room of the detachment to take deep care of their living.
He mounted an observation post to hear a detailed report on the modernization of the post and the enemy targets on Taeyonphyong Island.
He said that Jangjae Islet is one of the islets to which he attaches greatest importance as it is located in the southernmost part in the southwestern sector of the front, adding that once a battle breaks out, the soldiers of the detachment should play a big role.
He stressed the need for the soldiers to keep themselves fully ready to go into action to annihilate the enemy any time an order is issued and instructed them to deal deadly blows at the enemies and blow up their positions if they fire even a single shell at the territorial waters or land of the DPRK.
He had a picture taken with the service personnel of the detachment and their families.
The second leg of his inspection was Mu Islet Hero Defence Detachment.
He mounted an observation post before feasting his eyes on Taeyonphyong Island with keen attention.
He received a report from the commander of the detachment on terrain conditions, distribution of forces and combat preparations of the detachment.
He reconfirmed in detail reinforced firepower strike means and targets of the enemy deployed on five islets in the West Sea including Yonphyong Island defence unit and defined the order of precision strikes.
He gave detailed instructions to more satisfactorily equip the detachment with weaponry, increase the density of firepower on targets and ensure intensive shelling in order to cope with the frantic arms build-up of the enemy entrenched under the very eyes of the soldiers.
Learning in detail about the issue of providing army surgeons at the wartime suited to the specific conditions of the detachment and the issue related to the proposal for operation and combat, he took necessary measures.
He was greatly satisfied to learn about the preparations for combat readiness of the Jangjae Islet Defence Detachment and the Mu Islet Hero Defence Detachment.
He said that as he stressed during the previous inspection, this is not only the biggest hotspot in waters off the Korean Peninsula but a very sensitive area on which world attention is focused and where interests of many countries are intertwined.
He ordered the soldiers of the detachments to watch every move of the enemy with vigilance and promptly deal deadly counterblows at him if a single shell is fired on the waters and land where the DPRK's sovereignty is exercised and thus make the first gunfire and shoot a signal flare for a great war for national reunification.
He said all the service personnel of the ground, naval, air and anti-air and strategic rocket forces including the frontline units are fully ready to fight a Korean style all-out war, adding if the enemy makes any slight reckless provocation against the DPRK again in the sensitive waters, he will issue an order to start the just great advance for national reunification in all frontline areas, never missing the golden opportunity.
He had a photo session with the service personnel of the detachment and their families.
Accompanying him were Choe Ryong Hae, Jang Song Thaek, Kim Kyok Sik, Kim Yong Chol, Pak Jong Chon, Rim Kwang Il and An Ji Yong.
