Ceaseless Aerial Espionage Committed against DPRK

   Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists committed more than 100 cases of aerial espionage against the DPRK and the south Korean puppet armed forces at least 70 cases in June, and this brought the total number of cases of espionage to more than 1,000 in the first half of the year, according to military sources.
    On June 29, U-2 belonging to the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces in south Korea made a shuttle flight all day long in the air over the areas of Tokjok Islet, Phochon and Sokcho to perpetrate air observation and electronic reconnaissance against all areas of the DPRK. This spy plane perpetrated 25 cases of espionage during the month and more than 160 cases in the first half of the year.
    Meanwhile, the U.S. imperialists periodically let overseas-based RC-135 make high-altitude flights in the air over the area of south Korea for the purpose of spying on the strategic targets of the DPRK.
    They let three or four RC-12s and RC-7Bs fly in the air over the forefront every day to commit espionage against the DPRK in June, bringing the number of cases of espionage perpetrated by such planes to more than 560 in the first half of the year.
    At a time when the madcap "Key Resolve" and "Foal Eagle" joint military exercises for aggression and joint air military maneuvers were under way, the U.S. imperialists in a coordinated operation with the puppet armed forces mobilized 15 strategic and tactical reconnaissance planes on a daily average and 21 at maximum and Japan-based E-3 to spy on the DPRK.
    RC-800 and RF-4C belonging to the south Korean puppet armed forces flew in the sky over the areas along the Military Demarcation Line every day to perpetrate madcap aerial photographing and electronic reconnaissance against the DPRK.
    Espionage against the rival side is bound to get pronounced on the eve of a war.
    The aerial espionage frantically escalated by the U.S. imperialists and warmongers of the south Korean puppet armed forces keeping pace with their espionage by use of satellites patently proves that they are further stepping up the preparations for a war of aggression.
