South Korea reveals location of THAAD missile defense system

In a statement, Deputy National Defense Minister Yoo Jeh Seung said the location for the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) battery would "maximize the military effectiveness of the THAAD battery while ensuring the safety of the local population."

Washington and SeoulĀ announced the battery's deployment last week, in a move that outraged North Korea, which has threatened to "physically act" against the THAAD and make the allies "suffer from the nightmare extreme uneasiness and terror."
