(Worthy News) - North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles on Thursday, according to South Korea’s military.
The South Korean military explained that the missiles were likely fired from a “super-large” multiple rocket launcher, the same type of launching equipment used by South Korea, as the year-end deadline for the United States to offer a new proposal in its nuclear talks with North Korea looms.
News of missile tests came after days of escalated tensions between the two Koreas following an announcement from North Korea that its military conducted artillery drills in disputed waters. South Korea condemned the artillery drills, which were directly ordered by Kim Jong Un, and noted that training in disputed waters breached a peace agreement.
