Tokyo, North Korea fired a series of ballistic missiles on Thursday, one of which triggered a state of alert in Japan after a series of missiles fired near South Korean waters. According to a report by the Yonhap News Agency, residents in the central and northern parts were warned to take shelter as the missile passed near Japan. The J-Alert Emergency Broadcasting System said residents of Miyagi, Yamagata and Niigata prefectures in northern Japan were warned to take shelter indoors on Thursday.
North Korea fired 23 missiles
North Korea fired a record 23 missiles in a day, which created a state of alert in Japan and South Korea. About 25 minutes after the first notification of the launch, Japan’s Coast Guard said the missile had landed in the Pacific Ocean, 1,100 kilometers east of Japan. On the alert issued during the missile, it has been said that a missile had flown over Japan. However, Japan’s Defense Ministry later said that the missile did not go over Japanese territory.
South Korea fired three missiles in response
Tension has arisen between the two countries after a North Korean missile fell close to South Korean waters.
