South Korea’s military is reportedly preparing a surgical strike scenario against North Korea

The surgical strike would target North Korea’s missile and nuclear facilities, it is understood.

As part of the operation South Korea’s forces would launch Taurus cruise missiles from F-15 fighters, it has been reported.

The South Korean military’s own strike-hit scenarios are said to include plans to create a special mission brigade of 1,000 to 2,000 at the end of this year.

The reports come amid high tensions between North Korea and South Korea.

Last week North Korea launched the longest range intercontinental ballistic missile it has ever tested.

It flew for about 45 minutes, going 3,700 kilometres high and for a distance of 1,000 kilometres, according to analysis from the US and its allies.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un hailed the test as a success and claimed the “whole US mainland” is now within range of his missiles.

US President Donald Trump condemned the missile launch.

Immediately following the missile launch, US and South Korean forces conducted live-fire exercises and the US flew two supersonic B-1B jets over the Korean peninsula in a display of force.

After the launch, a poll of South Korean citizens revealed that more than half of South Koreans support nuclear armament, according to one of Seoul’s top security advisers.

Moon Chung-in, an aide to the country’s president, Moon Jae-in, said Donald Trump’s “America first” policy has “triggered this kind of public sentiment”.

Yoon Young-seok, an MP from the Liberty Korea Party, also said the public want to strike a better balance of power between South and North Korea.
