North Korea conducted missile provocations on Nov. 3 for the second consecutive days. It is the 19th missile provocation since the inauguration of the Yoon Suk-yeol government.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said on Nov. 3 that North Korea fired unknown ballistic missiles into the East Sea.
"It is presumed to be an ICBM launch from the Suan area in Pyongyang at around 7:40 a.m. and the firing of two apparent short-range ballistic missiles from Kaechon in South Pyongan Province from around 8:39 a.m.," said the JCS.
Japan's NHK reported that warnings were issued to Miyagi Prefecture and other regions due to North Korea's missile launches.
The provocations came a day after the North shot more than two dozen missiles, including one that flew across its de facto maritime border with South Korea for the first time since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.
The JCS said that North Korea is seen as demonstrating its firepower in protest against this week's combined air drills of South Korea and the United States.
