In Japan and South Korea, it is believed that we are talking about a ballistic missile.
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea on Tuesday, January 11, fired an unknown projectile towards the Sea of Japan.
This was reported by the Yonhap news agency with reference to the Joint Chiefs of Staff of South Korea (JCS).
It is noted that experts are now “studying characteristics such as the range and height of the projectile, which is likely a ballistic missile.”
According to Kyodo, the rocket fell outside Japan's exclusive economic zone. There is no information about the losses yet.
This is the second missile launch from the DPRK towards the Sea of Japan this year.
Earlier, North Korea reported successful tests of a hypersonic missile that “accurately hit a target set at a distance of 700 km.”
