The second in two days, a short distance away, in the Sea of ​​Japan

Today North Korea launched a short-range ballistic missile into the East Sea, also known as the Sea of ​​Japan. This was stated by the South Korean military. The Seoul General Staff added that this is the second consecutive test within two days, as the missile was launched from Yeongseong district in the capital region of Pyongyang.

Yonhap said, quoting the General Staff, that the missile was launched from the Yeongseong district of the capital, Pyongyang, and fell into the East Sea, also known as the Sea of ​​Japan. Military tensions on the Korean peninsula escalate sharply in 2022, as North Korea conducts anti-sanctions weapons tests almost every month, including the launch of its most advanced intercontinental ballistic missile ever. North Korea launched three short-range ballistic missiles yesterday, the Seoul-based military said, a day after South Korea successfully tested a solid-fuel space launch vehicle. The North Korean launch came after five North Korean drones intruded into southern airspace earlier in the week. North Korea’s drone strike on Monday was the first of its kind in five years and prompted an apology from Seoul’s defense minister after the military failed to shoot down a single drone despite sending planes in a five-hour operation.
