North Korea Forms Special-Operations Forces ‘For The First Time’ Amid Tensions With U.S. | Task & Purpose

Amid ongoing tensions with the U.S., North Korea has created special-operations forces “for the first time,” according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.

Pyongyang announced the Korean People’s Army special forces during a military parade over the weekend, which marked the anniversary of the 105th birthday of Kim Il Sung, who founded the country and is the grandfather of current leader Kim Jong Un.

The members of the new forces were reportedly shown marching in the parade, decked out in sunglasses and helmets with night-vision goggles.
