(Before It's News)

DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 12, 2017, 4:45 AM (IDT)

North Korea fired a ballistic missile into the sea off its east coast early on Sunday 12.2, South Korea's military said, the first time the isolated state has tested such a device since the election of U.S. President Donald Trump.
U.S. and South Korean military sources said the missile did not appear to be an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) given its flight range.
Trump had been briefed on the missile launch, and the White House is continuing to monitor the situation.
 Trump did not respond to a shouted question from a reporter about the launch as he posed for pictures with visiting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ahead of a dinner in Florida.

 

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
