Following North Korea’s announcement on Tuesday that leader Kim Jong-un has received an “operational plan” for attacking the waters near Guam, new information on the Kim regime’s arsenal has been revealed.

The JoongAng Daily said it had obtained a copy of an old South Korean military report that estimated the North possessed nearly 800 missiles and 100 transporter-erector launchers in 2014. But the South Korean newspaper said it’s unknown how many missiles with supporting launchers are currently in the North’s inventory.
