According to Yonhap’s report, the South Korean General Staff said in a statement that the launch to the Yellow Sea took place at 04:00 local time.
In the statement, which was noted that North Korea’s possible launch attempts were closely monitored, it was stated that the vigilance of the South Korean army was supported in cooperation with the United States.
North Korea conducted a short-range ballistic missile test in the East Sea (Sea of Japan) on July 18.
After 42 years, the USA sent the Ohio-class nuclear submarine USS Kentucky to South Korean waters, which increased the tension in the region.
USS Kentucky anchored in Busan Harbor on July 18 and left South Korean waters on July 21 after a 3-day visit.
