It is said that North Korean military started to repair and build protection wall for gallery against enemy air strike from mid April. A military official in Chongjin City delivered the news to ASIAPRESS (Kang Ji-won)

According to his saying on May 11, “military camps are repairing and reinforcing the protection wall by the order on around mid April from the Ministry of Defense to protect the gallery against air strikes, including cruise missiles. Some camps completed the work, but most of them are still working,” the official commented.

He also explained that the ministry gave the order to rebuild the protection wall since they had found problems with the walls through stock and condition checks on military supply.

Kim Jong-un regime might have felt intimidation by the cruise missile attack of Trump regime on Syria on April 6, which led them to order reinforcement of the protection wall.

He gave the details of the order: As most of the protection walls are made of stones, it is likely that there would be casualties from chips by missile strike. Thus they tore down the existing ones and rebuilt the walls with gunny bags with sand and earth.

The protection wall means the wall or embankment to protect bullet proof door of gallery from enemy air strike. Every air raid shelter and gallery has that wall which is maintained with regular repairing work.

The military official continued his explanation: The new wall is built as a triangle, 5 meters ahead of and 3 meters high above the gallery entrance. But as the military camps can’t secure enough gunny bags, they purchase the bags at nearby farms and even at Jangmadang. (North Korean local market or black market)
