The shell fell outside the exclusive economic zone of Japan
If it is confirmed that the missile is a ballistic missile, it will be the third such launch this year.
The DPRK launched at least one missile towards the Sea of Japan. Reported by the agency Renhap citing the South Korean military on Tuesday 28 September.
At least one unidentified shell was fired into the Sea of Japan, according to the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS). He flew out of the hinterland to the east at about 6:40 am (00:40 Kyiv time). South Korean and US intelligence agencies are reviewing the launch for more information.
“Our military is closely monitoring the appropriate actions in coordination with the United States and maintains a state of readiness in preparation for additional launches,” the JCS said.
At the same time, the South Korean military did not specify whether the projectile launched by the DPRK was a ballistic missile. Meanwhile, the Japanese media, citing the government, reported that the DPRK allegedly launched a ballistic missile. It is also reported that the shell fell outside the exclusive economic zone of Japan.
If the missile is confirmed to be a ballistic missile, it will mark the third such launch this year, as well as the sixth test of the weapon.
