TOKYO, March 23, /ITAR-TASS/. North Korea launched 16 small range missiles on Sunday, the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff reported on Sunday.
They say the missiles were fired from mobile launchers located near Wonsan in Gangwon province. All the missiles were fired in the direction of the Sea of Japan.
On Saturday, North Korea launched 30 small range missiles simultaneously. They flew about 60 kilometers, according to the South Korean military sources.
The authorities in Seoul assume that North Korea has fired missiles in retaliation to the annual U.S. - South Korean exercises (Foal Eagle) that are currently under way in South Korea. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) regards them as allied training ahead on intrusion into Korean peninsula.
