North Korea conducted another missile test during the joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea. Governor Kim justified this by the “open hostility” he showed towards Pyongyang.
North Korea launched another missile test. According to South Korean and Japanese sources, a short-range ballistic missile was launched in the northwest region of Tongchangri. So it flew about 800 km until it hit the sea off the east coast.
The South Korean military said that the exercises that South Korea is currently conducting with the United States will continue. As part of the exercise, the United States has flown at least one B-1B long-range bomber for joint air training with South Korean fighter jets, South Korea’s Defense Ministry said today. The military exercises started since last Monday. It’s the biggest move in years.
The intercontinental ballistic missile was tested on Thursday
North Korea regularly accompanies its annual joint military exercises with threats and missile tests because the country views them as preparations for an invasion. North Korea had already tested an intercontinental ballistic missile on Thursday.
The Korean Central News Agency reported that ruler Kim Jong Un personally supervised the launch of the Hwasong-17 missile. He stressed the need to sow “fear in the hearts of the enemy” of the “open hostility” shown by Pyongyang’s military exercises.
