North Korea Fires Ballistic Missile Days After Failed Satellite Launch

Seoul: North Korea launched an unspecified ballistic missile towards the East Sea, also known as the Sea of Japan, on Thursday, according to South Korea’s military. This development follows Pyongyang’s recent unsuccessful attempt to deploy a spy satellite.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff confirmed the missile launch but provided no additional details. Meanwhile, Japan’s coastguard and prime minister’s office reported the firing of a suspected ballistic missile, stating that they were in the process of gathering more information.

Earlier this week, North Korea’s effort to place a spy satellite into orbit ended in failure, with the projectile exploding mid-air. This attempt had drawn criticism from both Seoul and Tokyo. Japanese broadcaster NHK captured footage of a flaming object in the night sky that burst into a fireball, reportedly filmed from northeast China during the failed launch.

Launching a reconnaissance satellite has been a longstanding goal for Kim Jong Un’s regime, which claimed success in November after two prior failures last year.

This latest missile launch underscores the ongoing tensions and the North’s determination to advance its military capabilities despite international condemnation and technical setbacks.
