South Korea funds funds to assassinate North Korean leader
The South Korean government has earmarked part of the military budget in 2018 for the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
The Kommersant newspaper said the task of "stripping the North Korean leadership of its leader" was assigned to a special platoon of South Korean army troops that was formed on December 1.
The South Korean Defense Ministry allocated the equivalent of $ 310,000 in new military budget funds to arm and train the platoon, which should receive training similar to that of the US commando that killed Osama bin Laden.
South Korea made the first attempt to form the assassination team of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) leader in 1968. It was made up of 31 criminals promised by the government to forgive them if they killed Kim Il Sung. They were eventually sent to North Korea, but the South Korean leader ordered their return, saying the assassination of the North Korean leader would thwart the efforts of the United States and the Soviet Union to achieve a breakthrough. They were not released without setting a date for the new operation. The members of the team rebelled in 1971, killed their supervisors and tried to reach Seoul. When the army cut through, they blew themselves up with grenades.
