2 missile tests from North Korea

2 missile tests from North Korea.

North Korea reportedly launched two short-range missiles in the direction of the Sea of ​​Japan.

Despite the United Nations (UN) Security Council resolutions and international sanctions, North Korea, which continues its efforts to develop nuclear weapons and missiles, has taken another step to escalate the tension in the region.


Pyongyang reportedly launched 2 new short-range missiles. According to the information obtained from the Ministry of Defense of Japan, the first of the missiles, which was fired at around 06:59 and 07:10 local time, reached an altitude of about 100 kilometers and covered a distance of 400 kilometers.

It was stated that the second missile went to an altitude of 50 kilometers and flew about 350 kilometers, while both missiles fell into the Sea of ​​​​Japan, outside the country’s exclusive economic zone. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff confirmed the tests and announced that the missiles were launched from the Sukchon region in South Pyongang province.


The Pyongyang administration, which issued a written statement minutes after the missile test, announced that “multiple rocket launch exercises were carried out” in response to the joint air exercises carried out by the USA with South Korea and Japan.

In the statement, which recorded that two 600 millimeter multiple rocket launcher projectiles were fired at targets 395 and 337 kilometers away, the rocket launcher system used in the exercise was defined as “the newest multiple launch system designed to destroy the enemy’s operational airspace”. It was noted that today’s shooting exercise, using multiple rocket launchers, a tactical nuclear attack vehicle, has proven that North Korea is ready to deter and counter the combined air forces of the United States and South Korea, which prides itself on its air superiority.



On the other hand, Kim Yo Jong, sister of Kim Jong-Un and Deputy Chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, lashed out at The United States and its allies in a written statement to the state News Agency. Stating that they are aware of the effectiveness of the strategic offensive movements of the US forces around the Korean Peninsula recently, Kim reminded that they will take the necessary measures in the face of any direct or indirect threat. Regarding North Korea ‘s missile tests, “Our frequency of using the Pacific as a firing range depends on the actions of the US forces,” said Kim.
