According to an official statement from Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), the missiles flew for 200kms before landing in the waters east of North Korea.

The launch on 21 March morning comes just days after the launch of mid-range ballistic missiles on 18 March.

“Our military is keeping close tabs on the situation and standing by with a heightened defense posture,” the JCS said, according to the Yonhap news agency.

The launches come after North Korea denounced annual US-South Korea military drills which it sees as a rehearsal for invading the North.
