WASHINGTON D.C. – A North Korean “drone strike” made headlines in March when KCTV footage of Kim Jong Un watched drills of the unmanned aircraft in a location NK News can now exclusively reveal as the Taewon-ri firing range.

Though the Korean People’s Army (KPA) has many demonstration and practice areas, the facility in Taewon-ri, Sadong-guyok, [대원리, 사동구역] is the most frequently used by the new general to demonstrate his effectiveness as a military leader in a time of rising international tensions.
