South Korea’s military on Wednesday said that it has fired three air-to-ground missiles in the wake of missiles launched by North Korea. The missiles were fired into waters “near the Northern Limit Line at a distance corresponding to the area where the North Korean missile struck,” South Korea’s military said in a statement, adding the exercise showed that Seoul would respond “sternly to any provocations”.
South Korea’s military said that its fighter jets fired three precision-guided missiles near the rivals’ eastern border. It said that the launches were in reaction to a barrage of North Korean missiles tests earlier. South Korea said that one of the North Korean missiles landed near the sea border. This is the first time ever since the peninsula’s division more than seven decades ago that North Korean missiles landed close to South Korean waters. South Korea denounced North Korea’s missile launches and called it an “intolerable” act, reported Yonhap News Agency. Seoul on Wednesday issued an air raid alert after North Korea fired short-range missiles.
