South Korea said it has deployed cruise missiles capable of destroying targets anywhere in the North

North Korea threatened Monday to launch special military actions against South Korea days after the South announced the deployment of new long-range cruise missiles which are capable of striking any place in the North.

South Korean defense ministry announced on Thursday that it has deployed new long-range cruise missiles with a range of 1,000 kilometers (621 miles), allowing the South to strike any place in the North.

"We announce that special actions by our revolutionary army aimed to crush reckless challenges by the enemy forces will begin soon," the North's military supreme command said in an English-language notice carried by the country's official Korean Central News Agency.

The North said its targets are “the Lee Myung-Bak group of traitors, the arch criminals, and the group of rat-like elements including conservative media.

It said the actions “will reduce all… to ashes in three or four minutes… by unprecedented peculiar means and methods of our own style”.
