South Korea says North Korea again Test Fired Short Range Missiles

  • South Korean reports say that North Korea has again tested multiple short range missiles. The test fires reportedly took place from Hodo peninsula, located in the eastern parts of DPRK. This is the first ever test firing after the unsuccessful Hanoi summit in Vietnam between the US and North Korea. After the reported test firing by DPRK, the US President Donald Trump said in a tweet that “He also knows that I am with him and does not want to break his promise to me”. While announcing the news in a statement, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said that DPRK “fired a number of short-range missiles from its Hodo peninsula near the east coast town of Wonsan to the north-eastern direction from 09:06 (00:06 GMT) to 09:27”. He went on to say that the short range missiles traveled anywhere from 45 miles to 125 miles and then landed in the Sea of Japan.
