North Korea Fires Two Short-Range Ballistic Missiles, South Says

North Korea Fires Two Short-Range Ballistic Missiles, South Says SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea launched two short-range ballistic missiles on Thursday, the South Korean military said, an escalation from the North’s most recent weapons test just five days ago. The two missiles were launched eastward from the country’s northwest, with one flying 260 miles and the other about 170 miles, the military said in a statement. It said officials from the South and the United States were jointly analyzing flight data to determine what type of missiles they were. “Our military has stepped up our surveillance and monitoring in preparation for possible additional launches by North Korea,” the statement said.

SEOUL, May 9 (Reuters) - North Korea fired an unidentified projectile on Thursday, the South's military chiefs said, less than a week after its leader Kim Jong Un oversaw the test-firing of multiple rockets and a missile.

The projectile was fired at about 4:30 p.m. (0730 GMT) from the northwest location of Sino-ri, towards the east, the South's Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement. It did not immediately release further details.

Last week North Korea launched a number of rockets and at least one short-range missile from its east coast into the ocean, sharply raising tension on the Korean peninsula at a time of stalemate in talks between Pyongyang and Washington.

북한 미사일 불상 발사 추정: 합참 South Korea ' s Joint Chiefs of Staff just announced North Korea fired a ballistic missile of an as-yet- unidentified type. Seoul' s military authorities have begun their preliminary analysis, but for now, they do not believe it was an intercontinental ballistic missile, or ICBM.

On Wednesday North Korea lashed out at the United States and South Korea, saying last week's strike drill was "regular and self-defensive" and rejecting the notion that it was an act of provocation.

South Korea responded to last week's action by the North by calling for an end to acts that escalate military tension.

The area where Thursday's projectile was launched is believed to be the site of a medium-range Rodong missile base on North Korea's east coast, a Washington-based think tank, the Center for Stratetic International Studies, says.

Saturday's launch of a short-range missile from another east coast area was the North's first test of a ballistic missile since it launched an intercontinental ballistic missile in November 2017.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea on Monday fired an unidentified projectile off its east coast, South Korea ' s military said, in what is likely the latest test-launch of a ballistic missile as the North seeks to build nuclear-tipped ICBMs that can reach the U. S . mainland.

At that time, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un declared its nuclear force was complete and extended an olive branch to the South and the United States, holding two summit meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump and three with the South Korean leader.
