Pyongyang launched 3 ballistic missiles, which fell into the waters of the Sea of Japan, reported the command of the South Korean General Staff, explaining that the missiles were launched at around 12:14 local time from Hwangju, in the western province of North Hwanghae (North Korea) and fell off the east coast, in the Sea of Japan.
“We are still in the investigation stage in order to determine the type of carriers that were tested,” said an anonymous military source. The Yonhap news agency, on the other hand, reports that “the communist regime launched 3 medium-range Rodong missiles. A Rodong missile has a range of 1,300-1,500 kilometers and can hit the Japanese territory.” An official told on Yonhap that “the three missiles flew for 1,000 km and fell into the water, about 400 km inside Japan’s identification zone” that Pyongyang gave no prior notice of the launch.
The Japanese Ministry of Defense has confirmed the launch of three missiles into the Sea of Japan, specifying that the archipelago territory does not seem to have suffered any damage. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who attended the G20 summit in Hangzhou, China, has indicated that he will cooperate with South Korean President Park Geun-hye, whereas the Ministry of Defense is still analyzing the dynamics of the flight of the missiles used by Kim’s regime and the debris they produced.
