North Korea fires short-range projectiles toward East Sea

 

South Koreas military said North Korea fired 2 short-range projectiles from a western region toward the East Sea on Tuesday.

 

According to the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), the projectiles were fired at 6:53 a.m. and 7:12 a.m. from near the City of Kaechon, Pyongannamdo, about 80km north of Pyongyang.

 

Reportedly, both projectiles flew around 330km across the peninsula at a maximum altitude of around 50~60km. The JCS explained that South Korean and U.S. intelligence authorities are analyzing their exact type.

 

This marks North Koreas 10th launching of projectiles this year.

 

Shortly after the launch, a National Security Council (NSC) meeting was held presided over by Chung Eui Yong, Chief of the Presidential National Security Office.

 

The meeting reviewed the overall security conditions on the Korean Peninsula and expressed strong concern over Pyongyangs repeated use of projectiles.
