North Korea testing new missiles is nothing new. It keeps experimenting with ballistic missiles and this in turn increases tensions. This time, a new missile was fired by North Korea from Pyongyang at 6 am yesterday; as per the officials, the unidentified projectile flew over Japan.
The test-flight was damn aggressive and it increased the anxiety all the more. The U.S Military and the South Korean Military analyzed the launch but couldn’t exactly say how it traveled.
This missile flew over Hokkaido island in Northern Japan and landed in Pacific Ocean. No attempts were made by the Japanese military for shooting down on it. Thankfully, the missile didn’t cause any damage to ships. However, it got separated in 3 parts as reported by NHK TV.
Warning and alert was issued by the Japanese government and people were asked to stay indoors and take proper precautions; there was a doubt that another missile might strike.
On the other hand, South Korean government said that National Security Council must meet and discuss the steps and details that have to be taken after this launch.
According to the chief spokesman of Japanese government, this missile launch has caused a big security threat to Japan. According to him, the most likely targets for the strike are Niigata, Gunma, Tochigi, Ibaraki, Fukushima, Yamagata, Akita, Miyagi, Iwate, Aomari and Hokkaido.
It would be crazy to think the US won’t have something to say about this.
