SEOUL, Aug. 9 (Yonhap) -- North Korea's military said Wednesday that it is considering operational measures to strike near the U.S. strategic military installations in Guam with its intermediate range ballistic missiles.

The threat comes days after the U.N. Security Council adopted a U.S-drafted sanctions resolution in response to its long-range missile tests last month.

The North's strategic force in charge of the country's ballistic missiles issued a statement that it is seriously reviewing measures to send a strong message that it can neutralize the U.S. military bases in Guam that house nuclear bombers and other key assets, with its Hwasong-12 missiles, the North's official Korean Central News Agency reported.
