SEOUL, November 2. /TASS/. The North Korean military on Wednesday launched six more missiles, including surface-to-air ones, the Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday, citing the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff.
"South Korea has recorded that North Korea launched additional six missiles, including surface-to-air missiles, toward the Sea of Japan and the Yellow Sea," the Yonhap news agency quoted the South Korean military as saying. They estimate that the missiles were launched between 4:30 and 5:10 p.m. local time (10:30 and 11:10 a.m. Moscow time).
Earlier, the South Korean side reported repeated missile launches by the North Korean military, including anti-aircraft missiles. It was noted that North Korea also conducted artillery fire on conditional targets in the buffer zone in the Sea of Japan, firing a total of about 100 shells. One of the North Korean short-range ballistic missiles was aimed at the South Korean island of Ulleungdo and landed near South Korean territorial waters south of the northern border line, which Seoul regarded as the de facto border. An air alert was declared on the island for the first time in nearly six years. In retaliation to the launches, South Korean aircraft fired three surface-to-air missiles into the sea north of the northern border line.
