South Korea: North Korea fires missiles again

South Korea: North Korea fires missiles again

Two short-range ballistic missiles are said to have flown toward the Sea of ​​Japan. To what extent is not clear.

North Korea fired at least two missiles, according to South Korean forces. The Seoul General Staff announced on Tuesday that the missiles flew in the direction of the Sea of ​​Japan (Korean: East Sea). Two short-range ballistic missiles were reportedly detected. How far they flew is not known at first.

North Korea is prohibited from testing any range of ballistic missiles by United Nations resolutions. These missiles can be equipped with a nuclear warhead. The country is under severe international sanctions because of its nuclear weapons program.

South Korea’s military exercises with the United States began on Monday. North Korea accuses both countries of preparing an attack with their joint maneuvers. Washington and Seoul argue about this. North Korea said it launched two strategic cruise missiles from a submarine on Sunday. It is said that this test also served as a nuclear deterrent.

The conflict on the Korean Peninsula has become much more volatile since last year. North Korea has increased the range and frequency of its missile tests. The United States and South Korea have resumed large-scale joint military exercises.
