    Pyongyang, December 1 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists committed more than 210 cases of aerial espionage against the DPRK in November by mobilizing reconnaissance planes of different types, according to a military source. On Nov. 22 their two U-2s made shuttle flights in the sky over the east and west seas of the south side along the Military Demarcation Line including the area 120 km west of Tokjok Islet, Phochon and Sokcho to spy on the strategic targets in the depth of the north side.
    Nov. 4, 9, 15 and 17 overseas-based RC-135 strategic reconnaissance planes flew in the air above the east and west seas of Korea to spy on the major targets in the north.
    The above-said spy planes flew on espionage missions against all areas of the north for at least 200 hours in November which means their daily flights averaged nearly 7 hours.
    Meanwhile, similar espionage was perpetrated more frequently than ever before by RC-12, RC-7B, E-3, EP-3 and other tactical and electronic reconnaissance planes against the north.
    This is an all-time high in the monthly average number of cases of espionage this year, a clear indication that the U.S. imperialists are frantically escalating their moves to stifle the DPRK by force of arms behind the scene of dialogue.
