North Korea fires another ballistic missile, seventh in two weeks
South Korea announces another ballistic missile launch by North Korea into the Sea of Japan.
According to Yonhap, this was announced in the Joint Chiefs of Staff, writes European Truth.
The missile is North Korea’s seventh such test in the past two weeks. The specific type of rocket and other details are still being specified.
On Friday, South Korea and the United States completed a joint two-day naval exercise involving the US aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, prior to a joint trilateral exercise with Japan.
Recall that on October 6, North Korea launched two short-range ballistic missiles, and on October 4, for the first time in 5 years, it launched a medium-range ballistic missile over Japan.
In North Korea, their latest launches are called “self-defensive” actions in response to the “threat” of the United States.
