North Korean hackers stole a large amount of classified military documents, including South Korea-U.S. wartime operational plans to wipe out the North Korean leadership, a South Korean ruling party lawmaker said yesterday.

South Korean companies that were forced to shut down operations in the Kaesong Industrial Complex in North Korea in 2016 have petitioned the government in Seoul to investigate reports that Pyongyang has reopened the facility without their consent.

North Korea has fired 22 missiles during 15 tests since February, drawing a sharp reaction from the United States and its allies.North Korea has launched two missiles over Japan and conducted its sixth nuclear test in recent weeks, creating new tension in the region.

The constant threat of war against North Korea's adversaries is so integral to Kim Jong Un's regime that state media are dominated by it and national events are marked with military parades and missile tests.

Tass quoted North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho on Wednesday accusing U.S. President Donald Trump of "setting a fuse of war" with his September speech at the United Nations.

During an appearance with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the White House on Wednesday, Trump said that while he listens to others around him, he has a "different" attitude when it comes to the North Korea - one he describes as "tougher".

The regime allegedly breached South Korean defense systems late past year and stole classified military documents, including allied war plans for a renewed military conflict on the Korean Peninsula and South Korean wartime defense plans.

When it first opened in 2004, the Kaesong complex, located about 54 kilometers northwest of Seoul, was meant to promote inter-Korean development and give North Korean workers a taste of life in the south, including snack foods like the cakes known as Choco Pies and toiletries that were resold as luxury items in the North.

USA officials have voiced their concern that Kim Jong-un's nation could launch cyber attacks on American infrastructure.

Some joint military plans have been rewritten recently in response to tensions with North Korea, according to The New York Times. "We must complete the construction of the national nuclear force by thoroughly upholding the party's byungjin policy", said a front-page editorial carried by the Rodong Sinmun newspaper to mark the party anniversary. Other stolen data included contingency plans for South Korean special forces and information on military facilities and power plants, he said.
