North Korea’s military intensified their recent threats against South Korea Monday.
The military promised to launch undetermined “special actions” to bring down the South Korean conservative government and media companies in less than four minutes.
According to the CBC, North Korea alleges the South Korean president insulted the April 15 celebrations of the national founder Kim Il Sung. It is rare that a military statement from the North vows for imminent action and includes a specific time length.
South Korean analysts are divided on the meaning of the threats. Some believe that the statements were meant to unnerve Seoul, while others believe that North Korea might plan future terrorist attacks.
The threats come following the unveiling of new missiles by both Koreas and fears that North Korea may plan a new nuclear test.
South Korea’s Unification Ministry is examining the intentions behind the threats.
