Trump warns of 'devastating' military option as North Korea moves jets
US president Donald Trump issued a familiar warning to North Korea, saying the US is prepared to use "devastating" military action if necessary, the CNN reported Wednesday.

Two defense officials said that the rogue nation has moved a small number of fighter jets, external fuel tanks, and air-to-air missiles to a base on its eastern coast to boost military readiness.

The officials would not go beyond saying a small number of assets had been moved by the regime to a known airfield in the eastern part of the country.

The move was seen in US satellite imagery and is viewed by the US as a North Korean effort to boost its military readiness in the eastern sector.

It would give the aircraft an ability to fly eastward further than its estimated 900-mile range.
