North Korea Taunts Seoul With ‘Satellite Photos’ of THAAD



In a new attempt to exert pressure on Seoul to end the deployment of US missile systems on its territory, Pyongyang released on Monday what it claims are high-resolution satellite photographs detailing the THAAD missile defense system’s installation in an area of South Korea close to its northern border.


The installation of the US-developed THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) missile defense system in South Korea has drawn regional condemnation not only from North Korea, but from China and Russia as well, who object to the system's range and powerful radar.

Pyongyang's state-run broadcaster, Korean Central TV Broadcasting Station (KCTV), released two images on Monday purported to have been acquired by a North Korean spy satellite, showing the components of the THAAD system at a golf course in Seongju County, South Korea.
