THAAD Can’t Intercept ICBM of North: S. Korean Paper

Pyongyang, August 5 (KCNA) — The south Korean newspaper Hangyore on July 31 said in an editorial that THAAD cannot intercept ICBM of the DPRK.

The south Korean authorities, much upset by the DPRK’s successful second test-fire of ICBM Hwasong-14, introduced nuclear strategic bombers of the U.S. and conducted military acts of aggravating the tension on the Korean peninsula, the paper charged.
The paper stressed that THAAD is a weapon system for intercepting medium-short range missiles and it is quite impossible to intercept ICBM of the north with this system.
