U.S. Military & South Korea Fires Missiles In Response To North Korea Firing Missiles Over Japan

U.S. and South Korean warplanes conducted bombing drills on Tuesday in response to North Korea’s firing of a ballistic missile over Japan, South Korea’s military said.

In a hugely provocative move that ramps up simmering tensions in the eastern Pacific, North Korea fired a Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile over Japan earlier on Tuesday for the first time since 2017 – prompting evacuation warnings in Japan.

United States and SouthKorea launched four missiles off the east coast of the Korean Peninsula on Wednesday morning local time.

South Korean and US aircraft fired at a mock target on an uninhabited island in the Yellow Sea, while the US and Japan also jointly carried out drills over the Sea of Japan.

The UN prohibits North Korea from testing ballistic and nuclear weapons. Flying missiles towards or over other countries without any warning or consultation also contravenes international norms.

Most countries avoid doing it completely as it can easily be mistaken for an attack. While it is not as big as a nuclear test – which could be next – it can be considered hugely provocative.

People in the north of Japan, including Hokkaido island and Aomori city, reportedly woke up to the noise of sirens and text alerts which read: “North Korea appears to have launched a missile. Please evacuate into buildings or underground.”
