ROME, NOV 03 – North Korea today launched three other ballistic missiles, one of which is long-range and two short-range: the armed forces of South Korea have known this. One of the missiles has triggered the anti-aircraft alarm forcing the residents of an island in South Korea and the inhabitants of parts of northern Japan to take shelter. Initially, the Japanese premier’s office had claimed that a missile had flown over the country, but it was later corrected by the Defense. The Seoul army said it had detected “a long-range ballistic missile, which is believed to have been launched into the Eastern Sea at around 07:40 (23:40 in Italy) in the Sunan area of Pyongyang” , referring to the Sea of Japan. Shortly thereafter, the military detected what “believed to be two short-range ballistic missiles launched around 08:39 from Kaechon in South Pyongan province,” he added. Yesterday the North had tested a barrage of at least 23 missiles of various types, as well as firing about 100 artillery rounds from Kosong County – again towards the sea, in a buffer zone established in 2018 to reduce tensions – covering in its action one broad spectrum from the east side of the Japan Sea to the west side of the Yellow Sea.
