North Korea has fired at least one unidentified projectile into the Sea of Japan (East Sea) on Sunday local time, Yonhap reported citing South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).
The report said that other details were not immediately available, including how many and what type of projectiles were launched.
The firing marked the fourth round of such launches this month. The previous one came on March 21, when North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles (SRBMs) believed to be its version of the U.S. Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS). The two projectiles were fired northeastward from areas near its western county of Sonchon in North Pyongan Province and they flew around 410 kilometers, reaching a maximum altitude of around 50 km.
Two projectiles were launched from the coastal Wonsan area and flew 230 kilometers (143 miles) with a maximum altitude of 30 kilometers (19 miles).
