Seal Team Six is taking part in drills in South Korea as tensions with the North Korean regime rise. The elite US Navy Seal team that killed Osama bin Laden is training with the South Korean military to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
Seal Team Six, the group that was sent to Pakistan in 2011 to kill Bin Laden, is taking part in secretive drills alongside South Korean commandos to take out the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un in the event of an escalated situation.
The special assassination squad, which will be launched in December, was created by the South Korean defence ministry to neutralise “command and control” systems in the North, The Times reported.
Song Young-moo, the defence minister, told MPs: “We are in the process of conceptualising the plan.
“I believe we can create the unit by December 1.”
South Korea’s defense ministry launched a plan to kill Kim dubbed Korea Massive Punishment and Retaliation (KMPR), local news service News 1 reported.
It is reportedly part of a “three-axis system” that includes Seoul’s homegrown anti-missile systems, the Korean Air and Missile Defense, or KAMD, and Kill Chain, a pre-emptive strike system.
The announcement comes after Kim Jong-un conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on in the mountain on Sunday.
North Korea’s Nuclear Weapons Institute claimed to have carried out a “perfect” hydrogen bomb test.
It triggered 6.3-magnitude artificial quake – ten times larger than any of North Korea’s previous attempts.
The launch was seen as a direct challenge to Trump, who has vowed to stop North Korea developing nuclear weapons that could threaten the United States.
Hours after the test, the White House warned North Korea of “total annihilation” after Kim Jong-un detonated a new thermonuclear bomb.
South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in said he had spoken to President Trump telling him that “powerful and practical measures” were needed to contain the North.
The mounting crisis in the Korean peninsula has left many fearing the outbreak of a global military conflict.
South Korea’s Asia Business Daily cited an intelligence source saying North Korea has been spotted moving an intercontinental ballistic missile towards its west coast.
On Monday, the US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Hale urged the 15-member group to impose the “strongest possible’ sanctions” against Pyongyang.
She said: “The time has come to exhaust all diplomatic means before it is too late.
“Enough is enough. War is never something the United States wants.
“We don’t want it now, but our country’s patience is not unlimited.”
