South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff announced that the trials were conducted at 07:41 and 07:51 local time from the southwestern Jangyon region.
Short-range ballistic missiles (SRBM) traveled more than 600 kilometers in the air and crashed into the Sea of Japan.
Japanese Defense Minister Hamada Yasukazu said the missiles in question fell outside the Japanese national exclusive economic zone.
Japanese Prime Minister Kishida Fumio said in a statement that there was no damage to the cruise elements in the area where the missiles fell.
Cabinet Chief Secretary Matsuno Hirokazu stated that with missile tests of various types, the Pyongyang administration could increase its provocations in the region.
It was noteworthy that the test was carried out after the “Liberty Shield” exercise, which was launched yesterday by the South Korean and US armies and is planned to last until 23 March.
“This is an exercise based on a joint operational plan designed to defend South Korea against possible aggression from the North,” South Korea’s statement on the exercise said.
