North Korea held a military parade today, a South Korean military source announced, in a show of force to celebrate the 90th anniversary of its military, considered a major event in the country.
According to this source, the parade celebrating the anniversary of the Korean People’s Revolutionary Army began at 10 p.m. local time (10 a.m. GMT) in Kim Il Sung Square in the capital Pyongyang.
The nuclear-armed communist government often celebrates special dates or commemorations with large military parades that begin with military parades, which are led by infantry marches, armored vehicles, and finally those culminating in missiles. Which Pyongyang claims.
Observers often closely monitor these developments to try to find out about the latest North Korean weapons developments.
North Korea has held only three nightly military parades in recent years, and state media only reported the events the following day. Monday night’s parade was also not announced by the local media.
Pyongyang has conducted more than ten weapons tests this year, including the launch of a full-range intercontinental ballistic missile for the first time since 2017.
