North Korea Nearly Strikes South Korea During Missile Test

Well if it’s not one thing, it’s the other; isn’t that how the old saying goes?

If it’s not Volodymyr Zelenskyy suggesting erroneously that Russia struck Poland with a missile and attempting to goad the globe into World War III, it’s Kim Jong Un almost blindsiding South Korea during a ballistic missile test.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile Thursday that landed in waters just east of the Korean Peninsula, according to the South Korean government.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff confirmed the launch of the short-range ballistic missile from the North’s eastern coastal Wonsan area at 10:48 a.m., just hours after North Korean officials threatened “fiercer” military actions amid alleged provocations by the U.S., South Korea, and Japan.

The region was already in a heightened state of alert.

South Korea has boosted its surveillance of North Korea amid the growing missile threat and continues to maintain a military readiness for a potential conflict, officials said.

Given the frequency with which North Korea’s missile tests go awry, this sort of proximity certainly presents a troubling aura for Seoul and beyond.
