U.S. bombers are set to fly over the Korean peninsula as part of a joint aerial drill with South Korea amid rising tensions with Pyongyang.
The B-1B Lancer bombers will take part in the large scale exercise Wednesday.
The U.S. and South Korea began a five day drill on Monday, which will include attacks against mock North Korean missile launch sites.
This comes after Pyongyang launched an ICBM last week, which it claims could reach the United State’s mainland.
North Korea has warned the joint drills would push the Korean peninsula to the “brink of nuclear war.”
U.S. military dependants in South Korea have been urged to head back to the states as suggested by Senator Lindsey Graham, who said the the conflict with the North was getting very close.
