SEOUL, South Korea —
South Korea’s army says North Korea fired an unidentified missile from its capital Pyongyang in a continuation of weapons checks following its sixth and strongest nuclear check so far on Sept. three.
South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Employees stated Friday that the missile was launched from Sunan, the location of Pyongyang’s worldwide airport.
The North final month used the airport to fireside a Hwasong-12 intermediate vary missile that flew over northern Japan in what it declared as a “significant prelude” to containing the U.S. Pacific island territory of Guam and the beginning of extra ballistic missile launches concentrating on the Pacific Ocean.
South Korea’s Protection Ministry says the nation’s army carried out a reside-hearth ballistic missile drill in response to the North’s launch.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in has scheduled a Nationwide Safety Council assembly to debate the launch.
