It is reported that the North Korean military authorities began inspecting the preparations for battle of the troops in the front (front) region on Kim Jong-il’s birthday (February 16, propaganda to Gwangmyeong Seongjeol).
According to a source inside the Daily NK military on the 16th, the inspection team was made up of members of the Operation Bureau and Armament Bureau of the General Staff.
They suddenly hit the 1st and 5th corps stationed in Gangwon-do on the 12th, and are currently inspecting the status of weapons and combat technology equipment as well as the operational status of each corps (to be completed on the 21st).
It is interesting to note that the Operation Bureau directly participated in the inspection team. It is a message that it is a step that is different from the previous censorship, which focused only on’strengthening military discipline’, and is focusing on checking the actual operational performance.
Regarding this, the source said, “The members of the Operation Bureau are looking into the ability to command the tactics of the unit’s operations, which have changed according to the newly organized weapons, and how to respond to attacks and defenses.”
It is also noteworthy that members of the Armed Forces Bureau are included. Unlike members of the Operation Bureau who check the operational status, they are “professionally inspecting the status of newly deployed weapons.” In addition, major weapons, ammunition, and combat vehicles are being checked at the same time.
Overall, it is a follow-up measure for the’strengthening of national defense power’, which was emphasized by Chairman Kim Jong-un during the 8th Party Congress, and is interpreted as a part of a practical project to check the operational and tactical response status of newly deployed strategic weapons.
In particular, the intention to continue inspiring hostility toward South Korea, which has been designated as an enemy army, is also read in that the area close to us was censored. In this regard, it is said that the 2nd and 4th Corps, which are the rest of the entire army, have already undergone censorship from the 6th (currently in discussions on reward and punishment).
A source said, “This inspection team has been searching for the command of each corps, battalion, and company, and continuing to emphasize the point that’we must protect the well-being of our people and the gateway to our country’. I didn’t leave out the point that you have to keep an eye on it.”
Meanwhile, the source said that the censorship team is also meticulously investigating the situation of responding to the quarantine of the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19) in each unit and compliance with regulations.
