South Korea ’s Joint Staff Headquarters said on November 28 that North Korea launched UFOs on the same day, and authorities are analyzing the specific parameters of the flying objects. The flying object was launched at 5 pm and then fell into the Sea of Japan (Korean name East Sea). Japan’s Ministry of Defense says they appear to be ballistic missiles.
This is North Korea’s re-launch of a flying object after 28 days, and this is the 13th test firing of this year. For the last time, on October 31, the South Korean Joint Staff Headquarters detected North Korea firing two unknown types of short-range objects into the eastern waters of the Korean Peninsula from the Suncheon area of Pyeongnam-do in the west, with a maximum flight altitude of 90 kilometers and a flight distance of about 370 kilometers.
Japan’s maritime security agency pointed out that the first flying object appeared to be a missile and fell outside its exclusive economic zone. The South Korean military later confirmed that a second flying object had also been launched. It was launched at North Korea’s Yonpo Airfield. The Japanese Ministry of Defense pointed out that the flying objects that fell into Japan’s exclusive economic zone appeared to be ballistic missiles.
The North Korean News Agency reported on November 1 that the purpose of the test firing was to verify the stability of the continuous firing system of the super large rocket launcher. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un expressed his great satisfaction at this and congratulated the defense scientists for developing the national self-defense military strength and strengthening Pyongyang’s armed forces.
North Korea successfully tested the “North Star 3” submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) on October 2. The Yonhap news agency quoted experts as saying that the missile’s range is estimated to be over 2,000 kilometers.
