ICBM launch


North Korea and South Korea exchange missile launches, but so far no strikes

South Korea and North Korea exchanged ballistic missile launches.

In response to three ballistic missiles launched from the territory of the DPRK in just one hour, South Korea and the United States launched two missiles near the borders of the DPRK, thereby demonstrating to Pyongyang the readiness to use similar weapons. Pyongyang was extremely dissatisfied with such actions, which could lead to a very serious escalation in the region.

According to information available to the news agency Avia.pro, in response to provocative ballistic missile launches, aviation exercises and joint launches of ground-to-ground missiles by the United States and the Republic of Korea were conducted. All this has raised very serious concerns that the region could escalate. In addition, Pyongyang's launches of an intercontinental ballistic missile are the first escalation directed against the United States.

According to the South Korean news agency Yonhap, two more ballistic missiles launched from the territory of the DPRK are KH-23 tactical missiles, which were called the North Korean Iskander for their very similarity to Russian-designed missiles.
