South Korea and the United States fired four surface-to-ground missiles into the Baltic Sea, better known as the Sea of ​​Japan, the UKTN said Wednesday, citing the South Korean military.

The launches were in response to North Korea firing a ballistic missile over Japan for the first time in five years on Tuesday, the South Korean military said.

South Korea and the United States each fired two Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) missiles, which hit mock targets, the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol called the North Korean launch a “provocation” and promised a “severe response”.

On Tuesday, South Korean and US fighter jets conducted a bomb drill on a target in the Yellow Sea.

The last time Pyongyang fired a missile over Japan was in 2017, at the height of a period of “fire and fury” when North Korean leader Kim Jong Un exchanged insults with then-US President Donald Trump.

UN chief Antonio Guterres condemned North Korea’s latest test as “clearly an escalation”, while US President Joe Biden and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida denounced it “in the strongest terms”.
