North Korea taunted the United States on Tuesday for the false missile alert sent to Hawaii residents Jan. 13 — and boasted the regime's ICBMs have Americans "trembling with fear," Fox News reported.

According to Fox News, the state-run Korean Central News Agency bragged the incident has the United States rattled.

"The U.S . . . is now on jitters, being seized by 'fear of the north's missiles,'" the KCNA statement read, Fox News reported. "A ballistic missile threat warning was released throughout Hawaii, U.S. by a mistake recently.

"It is none other than the U.S. which is trembling with fear, stricken by extreme horror and pressure even by a single message and by a flash in the sky."

"The mindset of the panic-stricken Americans is that the higher the level of confrontation with the [Democratic People's Republic of Korea], the world-level nuclear power and a rocket power, the higher the level of disaster to be inflicted upon them," the statement said, Fox News reported.

Within days of the Hawaii mistake, Japanese broadcaster NHK also issued an alert saying "North Korea appears to have fired a missile" — when no launch occurred in the region. The news program apologized for the mistake, which it blamed on "equipment to send a news flash onto the Internet" that "had been incorrectly operated."
