The North Korean regime fired off three missiles today off of its eastern coast.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
North Korea fired three short-range missiles Saturday into the sea off the eastern coast of the Korean peninsula, stirring tensions that had appeared to ease in the wake of a recent series of threats directed at South Korea and the U.S.

The missiles posed no danger to neighboring countries. Analysts said the launches were likely intended as a protest against joint South Korean-U.S. naval drills earlier this week.
South Korea’s defense ministry said that North Korea had fired two missiles into waters off the Korean peninsula in the morning, followed by a third missile in the afternoon.
“In our judgment, the missiles are short-range guided missiles, not midrange missiles such as the Musudan,” South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said.
