كوريا الشمالية تختبر “سلاحاً نووياً تحت الماء”

By Jordi Bou

January 19, 2024 - قالت كوريا الشمالية إنها أجرت اختباراً لنظام أسلحة نووية تحت الماء رداً على التدريبات الأخيرة التي أجرتها كوريا الجنوبية والولايات المتحدة واليابان.

The test is in response of this week‘s joint military drills by South Korea, the United States and Japan, state media KCNA said on Friday.

It is the fourth time state media has reported on the country’s “Haeil” unmanned underwater
vehicle (UUV) development, a kind of torpedo North Korea says can be fitted with tactical nuclear warheads.

Dubbed “Haeil”, meaning tsunami, is intended to sneak into enemy waters and create a large radioactive wave through an underwater explosion.

The test comes in North Korea as tensions rise on the Korean Peninsula, with Pyongyang becoming increasingly fiery in its rhetoric on preparing the country for war.
