United States sent two bombers to Korea this week

North Korea's announcement warned that it is preparing a plan to fire four of its Hwasong-12 missiles over Japan and into waters around the tiny island, which hosts 7,000 U.S. military personnel on two main bases and has a population of 160,000. Pacific Command's continuous bomber presence missions, officials said.

After taking off from the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, the aircraft flew over Japan and the Korean Peninsula during a 10 hour mission before landing back in Guam.

Tensions between Washington and Pyongyang were exacerbated after a new round of sanctions by the UN Security Council on North Korea earlier in August, which followed fresh missile tests by Pyongyang.

The U.S. dispatched two B-1Bs late last month in response to the North's test-firing of another intercontinental ballistic missile. However, Russia said that the missiles were intermediate range, not ICBMs.

Some view USA military actions near the Korean Peninsula as belonging to the same class of threats Trump warned against on Tuesday when he said that North Korean threats would be met with "fire and fury and power".

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recently tried to calm the situation, saying that North Korea poses no "imminent threat" to the US and that "Americans should sleep well at night".
