North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un unveiled his deadly Special Forces unit for the first time this weekend in an apparent show of force against US President Donald Trump.

The menacing and ‘highly trained’ troops yelled patriotic slogans as they carried rifles fitted with grenade launchers through the streets of the Pyongyang during a military parade on Saturday.

The crack team, said to be the best equipped in the Korean People’s Army, had night vision goggles affixed to their helmets and handguns strapped to their chest.

‘Once Supreme Commander Kim Jong-un issues an order they will charge with resolve to thrust a sword through the enemy’s heart like lightning over Mount Paektu [the country’s highest peak],’ a broadcaster announced on North Korean state TV. 

Its presence at this weekend’s Day Of The Sun celebrations comes amid rising tensions with the United States and President Trump, who has refused to rule out a pre-emptive strike if Kim reaches for the nuclear button.

North Korea’s Special Forces unit is on standby to defend the country from elite US soldiers who are practicing to ‘remove’ Kim Jong-un from power should war arise, an analyst with South Korea’s Yonhap news agency claims.

A Pentagon report singled out the soldiers as ‘among the most highly trained, well-equipped, best fed and highly motivated” forces in North Korea’s army, CNN reported.

It said the highly secretive force, which is said to have carried out covert missions in South Korea, ‘appear designed for rapid offensive operations’ and defence against foreign attacks.

The report went on to say the Special Forces ‘operate in specialized units, including reconnaissance, airborne and seaborne insertion, commandos and other specialties’.
