North Korea fired two more ballistic missiles Thursday, according to South Korea, making January the busiest month ever for North Korean missile launches.
In an alert to reporters, South Korea’s military said the North launched what were presumed to be two short-range ballistic missiles toward the sea off its east coast around 8 a.m. local time.
It said the missiles were launched from the area near Hamhung, a city on North Korea’s east coast, and traveled about 190 kilometers at an altitude of 20 kilometers.
So far this month, North Korea has conducted six rounds of missile tests, firing at least 10 missiles into the sea.
