North Korea has fired a ballistic missile over northern Japan for the second time in less than a month, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said Friday. The ballistic missile was launched from the district of Sunan in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang, home to the country’s main airport.
The missile flew about 3,700 kilometers and reached an altitude of 770 kilometers. It landed in the Pacific Ocean.
The US Pacific Command said its initial assessment indicated that North Korea had fired an intermediate-range ballistic missile. There were conflicting reports from Japan on the type of missile fired.
In response to North Korea’s launch, South Korea carried out a live fire drill that included a missile launch which the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said was capable of striking the Sunan airport launch site near Pyongyang used for today’s launch.
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.
