North Korea Snarls at Israel After Defense Chief Calls Pyongyang ‘Crazy’

1

North Korea lashed out at Israel on Saturday after Israel’s defense minister called the hermit kingdom’s regime a “crazy and radical group,” blamed it of being an ally of Syria’s Assad and the Lebanese group Hezbollah and said growing tensions between the U.S. and Pyongyang have “direct implications” for Israel.

A statement released by the North Korean Foreign Ministry called Avigdor Lieberman’s statement “reckless” and a form of “sordid and wicked behavior” that posed a “grave challenge to the DPRK.”

North Korea said it is “fully supporting the struggle of the Palestinian peopleā€¦ [of] establishing of an independent state with Kuds as its capital,” using the Arab name for Jerusalem.

After stating that it is North Korea’s right to have nuclear weapons, the statement went on to say that “it is the steadfast will and spirit of the service personnel and people of the DPRK to give merciless, thousand-fold punishment to whoever dares hurt the dignity of its supreme leadership.” Read more at Ha’aretz
