North Korea launched, on Sunday, two apparently short-range ballistic missiles in the ocean off its east coast, in the latest test in an unprecedented series of launches.
And the South Korean Army's Joint Chiefs of Staff said that "two short-range projectiles" were launched from the coastal Wansan region and flew for 230 km and reached a maximum height of 30 km.
The Japanese Ministry of Defense stated that the projectiles appeared to be two ballistic missiles, adding that they had not fallen on Japanese soil or in the Special Economic Zone of Japan.
And if confirmed, they will be the eighth and ninth missiles launched by North Korea in four rounds of testing this month, with the North Korean forces continuing military exercises usually supervised by the country's leader, Kim Jong Un, personally.
This would be the largest number of missiles launched by Pyongyang within a month, according to a survey compiled by Chia Cotton, a research fellow at the James Martin Center for Nuclear Nonproliferation Studies. Ended / 25
