U.S. soldiers stationed in South Korea have recently conducted an exercise aimed at destroying North Korea’s weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) by practicing a ship-to-shore air assault from a South Korean warship, the infantry division said Thursday. The U.S. Army forces carried out the exercise, called “Warrior Strike 7” at Camp Stanley in Euijeongbu, just north of Seoul, and the Rodriguez Live Fire Complex near the inter-Korean border, it said.
