North Korea says US and South Korea ‘kneeled’ before its air force might

State media hails DPRK’s show of force earlier this month, which it claimed included 500 fighter jets and other aircraft

North Korean media hailed the might of its air force on Tuesday, claiming that it brought South Korea and the U.S. to their knees with a show of force on Nov. 4 in which it previously claimed to have mobilized “500 fighters of different kinds.”

“The enemies once again kneeled down in early November when our air force's large-scale all-out operation was carried out,” ruling party newspaper Rodong Sinmun said in an article celebrating the annual Day of Air Men.
