North Korea fires a total of 28 missiles


On Nov. 3, North Korea fired three unidentifiable ballistic missiles at the East Sea. On the previous day, over the course of 11 days, a total of 25 ballistic missiles were fired from Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital. 

The South Korean military first identified a long-range missile around 7:40 a.m.; around 8:39 a.m., two short-range missiles were detected. 

This morning, Nov.3, experts say the first missile fired was an ICBM, an intercontinental missile, traveling over 5,600 km (3,500 miles). 

After President Yoon’s inauguration, this is the 19th firing. The Korean government has reacted strongly, stating that “while the entire nation was saddened by the Itaewon disaster, North Korea launched a surprise provocation with a number of missiles, including ballistic missiles.

South Korea’s government has declared that they“ will not tolerate any provocations from North Korea and will use all means to respond resolutely.

Also, current experts are considering the Nov. 3 ICBM launch a failure. As of now, the ICBM missile only reached the maximum height of 2,000 km and failed after 750km. Furthermore, Japan’s defense ministry clarified that the missile hasn’t crossed the Japanese skies.
