What does V+자 mean in this news article?

I have read that V+자 is analogous to "let's V" in Engish
가자 = Let's go

But uses it several places. Because it is a news article, I do not think that the author is making a proposal to the reader.

The full sentence is "김정은 북한 국방위원회 제1위원장의 고모부이자 한때 '제2인자'로 평가됐던 장성택 국방위 부위원장이 전격 처형되는 등 북한 권력 내부에 큰 소용돌이가 몰아치자 미국과 중국, 일본의 대북 안보·정보 라인이 총동원되고 있다."

and the V+자 is 몰아치자.
