A certain North Korean propaganda outlet on Thursday released an inflammatory video clip showing a simulated attack on the White House and declaring that “the enemy to be destroyed is in our sights.”

This  video comes at a very sensitive period in relations between North Korea and the United States, with Trump’s administration sending warships to the region in a show of force against Kim Jong Un’s regime. North Korea earlier this week , conducted large-scale artillery drills, showing off conventional weaponry that could easily reach the South Korean capital of Seoul.

Trump, who has been urging China to apply pressure to North Korea, convened congressional lawmakers Wednesday to brief them on the “very grave threat” posed by Pyongyang.

A North Korean website, Meari, or Echo, released a video showing photos of the White House and aircraft carriers with a target on them, as if they are in the crosshairs. It then showed simulated footage of the aircraft carrier exploding in a ball of flames, with the caption: “When the enemy takes the first step toward provocation and invasion.”

The 2 ½ -minute video included scenes from the huge military paradethat North Korea held on April 15 to mark the anniversary of the birth of the state’s founder, Kim Il Sung. It also showed footage of North Korean artillery and missile launches. Against the background of missile launches, the caption read: “We will show you what a strong country that leads the world in nuclear and missile technology is capable of.”
