BREAKING: Defiant North Korea Fires ANOTHER Unidentified Projectile
North Korea continues its active streak of weapons testing while tensions rise between North Korea and the U.S. and their allies.
Monday, North Korea fired another projectile off of their east coast. Some reports are saying that the projectile may land in the Japanese Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
North Korea fired an unidentified projectile on Monday from the region of Wonsan on its east coast in an easterly direction, South Korea’s military said.
The launch was immediately reported to President Moon Jae-in, who called a meeting of the National Security Council at 7:30 a.m. (2230 GMT Sunday), the South Korean office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.
North Korea’s provocations are nearly endless with this last year marking an uptick in North Korean aggression.
The Japanese government said the missile could fall in Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), the Kyodo news agency said, providing no further details. Firing a missile into Japan’s EEZ would be a provocative move.
There was no immediate word from U.S. Pacific Command, which typically provides a brief assessment within several hours. South Korean President Moon Jae-in has called an emergency meeting of the National Security Council.
