Anniversary of Victory in Yonphyong Island Shelling Marked
An army-people joint meeting took place in Kangryong County, South Hwanghae Province on November 23 to mark the 7th anniversary of the victory in the Yonphyong Island shelling.

Present there were men and officers of the Korean Peoples' Army including the servicepersons who had taken part in the Yonphyong Island shelling, officials and civilians from all walks of life in the county.

Army Colonel General Ri Song Guk, commander of the 4th Corps of the KPA, said in his address that the victory in the Yonphyong Island shelling was a great event as it fully demonstrated the invincible spirit of the KPA and recorded a page of proud victory in the history of Juche Korea.

Now the KPA service personnel standing guard on the biggest hotspot in the south-western sector of the front are filled with the strong will to make a prompt and merciless strike at the enemies and throw them into the waters by carrying forward the tradition of the victory in the Yonphyong Island shelling once an order is issued, he added.

Kim Pong Hyon, chairman of the Kangryong County Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, warmly congratulated the victors in the battle and expressed the will to annihilate the enemies, together with the servicepersons in the same trench, if the US imperialists and the south Korean puppet group of traitors fire even a bullet at the territorial land and waters of the DPRK.

The floor was taken by others.

At the end of the meeting there was a performance and march by the KPA Military Band.
