North Korea launches two ballistic missiles | outside

North Korea launched two ballistic missiles on Wednesday, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported. The short-range missiles fell into the sea, according to the neighboring country. It is possible that North Korea is showing its dissatisfaction with the military exercises in the region.

The missiles were launched in quick succession just before midnight (local time), according to the South Korean military. They were launched from the west coast, just north of the capital, Pyongyang, and each traveled a distance of about 360 km before landing in the Sea of ​​Japan. The South Korean military speaks of a provocative act that undermines peace and security.

The launch comes at a time when South Korea is organizing joint military exercises with the United States. And every year it causes increasing tensions with North Korea.

The United States deployed bombers in exercises on Wednesday. One of them flew alongside American and South Korean fighter jets. The United States and South Korea now hold annual exercises. These last eleven days and end on Thursday 31st August. Apart from these exercises, two US bombers were also deployed during a training exercise with Japanese fighter jets. The three countries held joint naval exercises on Tuesday.

North Korea says preparations are underway for an invasion, but its allies say their maneuvers are defensive in nature. The United States, South Korea and Japan are strengthening ties in response to North Korea, which has conducted several missile tests this year and is ramping up weapons production.
