Four elite U.S. military units — including the highly secret SEAL Team Six — are slated to practice taking out North Korea's leadership during a military exercise with South Korea.
The Foal Eagle and Key Resolve exercises, which take place every year, began March 1. This year, SEAL Team Six and three special operations units from the Army — the Rangers, Delta Force, and Green Berets — will be on hand to rehearse a decapitation strike, according to the Yonhap News Agency.
"A bigger number of and more diverse U.S. special operation forces will take part in this year's Foal Eagle and Key Resolve exercises to practice missions to infiltrate into the North, remove the North's war command and demolition of its key military facilities," a South Korean military official told the news agency.
The Foal Eagle exercise involves more than 31,000 members of the U.S. military, including the 28,000 that are stationed in South Korea.
Korea Joongang Daily reported U.S. F-35 fighter jets will partake in the exercises as well, and will simulate attacks on North Korean targets.
Operators from SEAL Team Six killed Osama Bin Laden during a 2011 raid in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
