As the tensions between the United States and the Pyongyang regime are growing exponentially on a daily basis, a Russian newspaper is reporting that Kim Jong-un ordered the evacuation of the country’s capital.
According to Pravda Report, the residents of Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital, were ordered to leave the city ASAP. If the information proves to be accurate, it may signal that Kim Jong-un is getting ready for war.
Pravda Report claims that 600,000 people from PyongYang, which makes for approximately 25% of North Korea’s population, are currently being evacuated. South Korean mainstream media also reports that residents in the kingdom have already said good bye to each other, sparking fears that North Korea’s “crazy fat kid” Kim is about to take action after months of testing his military nuclear capacity.
A correspondent for Channel News Asia who is currently in North Korea, Jeremy Coh respectively, tweeted earlier on Wednesday:
“We’ve been told to be ready to move out at 6.20am, but no idea why. Also, no cell phones allowed.”
North Korean officials have already warned the west that nuclear war may start at any minute due to the extremely tense situation in the region. The US sent a navy strike force group including a nuclear powered aircraft carrier in the Korean Peninsula, while China massed hundreds of thousands of troops at its border with North Korea, signaling a potential land invasion following an American airstrike at Pyongyang’s vital infrastructure.
North Korea threatened with a nuke strike in retaliation at any sign of aggression from the US. The Pyongyang regime seems to be very nervous in the aftermath of President Trump ordering the launching of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian military airfield last week, in response to the regime’s alleged chemical attack that left 80 civilians dead.
