Kim Jong Un Inspects Islet Defence Detachment
Pyongyang, March 11 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Marshal Kim Jong Un Monday inspected the Wolnae Islet Defence Detachment, an outpost in the biggest hotspot in the western sector of the front very near from Paekryong Island.

He saw children on the islet jumping for joy, taking hands of their mothers and held them in his arms one by one before having a photo taken with them.

He walked along the lane leading to the detachment and learned in detail about the terrains of the islet, deployment of firepower equipment and the soldiers' living for hours.

He was briefed on the enemy's situation from the commander of the detachment at the observation post.

He acquainted himself with the troop deployment and targets of the 6th marine brigade of the south Korean puppet army on Paekryong Island and praised the detachment for being fully ready to go into action in order to cope with the enemy's attempt at provocations.

He underscored the need to keep increasing the density of fire and steadily modify and supplement the proposal for assignment of fire power duties and use of artillery pieces in order to cope with the enemy's changed troop deployment.

He specified before the commanding officers of the detachment and the leading members of the artillery unit of the 4th Army Corps of the KPA who accompanied him the order of strike and density of fire for wiping out enemy's targets including radar posts, detectors for artillery pieces, Harpoon launching base, 130mm multiple rocket and 150mm self-propelled howitzer batteries under the 6th marine brigade of the south Korean puppet army.

He ratified new regulations for naval operation: To fire threatening warning shells when enemy's warships sail close to waters on the extension of the Military Demarcation Line and fire powerful sighting shells to destroy them when they intrude into them.

He said his inspection of the islet defence detachments stationed in the biggest hotspot was to accurately learn about the combat preparations and finally confirm the order for precision strike at enemy's targets.

The enemies are on a knife edge for fear of prompt shelling from the KPA, he said, adding that the enemies feel fretful after straining the situation by staging what they called annual drills in the most sensitive waters where the two opposing sides stand in sharp confrontation.

As the saying goes that a guy who is fond of playing with fire is bound to perish in flames, all the enemies quite often playing with fire in the sensitive hotspot should be thrown into a cauldron once I issue an order, he said, adding:

The density of our fire is very high at present and it can strike enemy's targets on Paekryong Island three or four times and turn it into a sea in flames.

He told the commander of the detachment to photograph enemy's positions engulfed in flames and blown up during a battle and send pictures to the Supreme Command.

Once an order is issued, you should break the waists of the crazy enemies, totally cut their windpipes and thus clearly show them what a real war is like, he noted.

As I told commanding officers while inspecting the Jangjae Islet Defence Detachment and the Mu Islet Hero Defence Detachment, if the Supreme Commander issues an order, the artillerymen of the Wolnae Islet Defence Detachment, too, should make the first gun report and signal flare for the great war for national reunification, he stressed.

Satisfied to see combat positions including the observation post built well in line with the instruction of the Supreme Command on making thorough preparations for all-out action, he said that this detachment is a perfect unit as it has turned into a strike base from a defence one.

He awarded higher military ranks to the commander and political commissar of the detachment on the spot by an order of the Supreme Commander as they have turned the detachment into an impregnable fortress, unsinkable warship.

He had a photo taken with Kim Kwang Chol, private third class soldier, on watch duty and commanding officers of the detachment after taking them to his arms.

He went round soldiers' bed room and education room to take warm care of their living.

He gave a pair of binoculars and an automatic rifle to the detachment as souvenirs and had a picture taken with soldiers and their families.

He enjoyed a performance given by the art group of the detachment soldiers on the same day.

Praising them for giving a good performance and singing songs well, he said this was a model of the Songun culture. He also praised the detachment for conducting well the political and ideological education as intended by the party.

He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Kim Kyok Sik, Kim Yong Chol, Pak Jong Chon, Rim Kwang Il and An Ji Yong.
