The announcement was made on Thursday morning.

The Washington Post is reporting that, North Korea announced on Thursday morning that they have constructed a detailed plan to launch a volley of ballistic missiles toward the US Pacific territory of Guam.

Guam is a major military hub and home to US bombers.

North Korea also dismissed President Donald Trump's fire and fury threat which was issued to the country on Tuesday evening.

The announcement, made in the name of a general who leads North Korea's rocket command, warned the North is preparing a plan to fire four of its Hwasong-12 missiles over Japan and into waters around the tiny island, which hosts 7,000 U.S. military personnel on two main bases and has a population of 160,000.

It said the plan could be finalized within a week or so and would then go to leader Kim Jong Un for approval.

It would be up to Kim Jong Un whether the move actually is carried out. It said the missiles would hit waters 19 to 25 miles from the island.
