Kim Jong Un Inspects KPA Special Operation Battalion
Pyongyang, November 4 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA), inspected a special operation battalion under KPA Unit 525.

He personally organized the battalion and made sure that its barracks were successfully built.

Going round the bedroom, education room, mess hall, general training hall and swimming drill pool of the battalion, he guided hurdle-overcoming training, general striking drill, shooting training, minimum altitude dropping training, drill for dropping from helicopters with the help of rope and assault training at the general outdoor drill ground.

The combatants of the battalion having their basic mission to wipe out the human scum who have committed thrice-cursed high treasons, holding important posts at Chongwadae, the puppet government and the military, have fully displayed their capability to fulfill their duties independently and effectively.

He highly praised them for their successes in the drills, saying that all of them are one-match-for-a-hundred fighters with iron fists and they are crack shots as they hit all targets with pistols and automatic rifles.

Noting that the battalion is a combat unit to which the supreme commander attaches special importance and in which he reposes the deepest trust, he set forth the tasks facing the battalion.

Expressing expectation and conviction that the combatants of the battalion having an important mission to stab the enemy hearts with sharp daggers and break their backs would successfully carry out their honorable combat duty, he gave them a pair of binoculars and automatic rifle as gifts before having a photo session with them.

He was accompanied by KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA, KPA Vice Marshal Ri Myong Su, chief of the General Staff of the KPA, and Army Col. General Ri Yong Gil, first vice-chief of the General Staff and director of the General Operation Bureau of the KPA.
