SEOUL, Aug. 10 (Yonhap) -- North Korea's military said Thursday it is considering firing four intermediate-range ballistic missiles around Guam, home to several U.S. strategic bombers.

North Korea's strategic force is "seriously examining the plan for an enveloping strike at Guam through simultaneous fire of four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range strategic ballistic rockets in order to interdict the enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a crucial warning to the U.S.," according to the Korean Central News Agency in English.

It said that the missiles will fly over Japan and land near the U.S. territory of Guam, adding that the country will report its detailed plan to leader Kim Jong-un by mid-August.
