Earlier today, North Korea launched an unspecified ballistic missile toward the East Sea. This was confirmed by the South Korean military's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) as reported by South Korean news agency Yonhap.

Details of the missile, including its type and flight path, are currently under analysis, with the JCS withholding further information at this time.

This recent launch is just the latest in a series of missile tests by North Korea.

On April 22, the regime fired 600-mm super-large shells, which are classified as short-range ballistic missiles, also aimed at the East Sea.

These actions continue to raise tensions in the region. South Korean and allied forces are closely monitoring the situation to gather more information about the missile and assess any potential threats.
