Japan claims North Korea fired 2 ballistic missiles

Japan's Coast Guard expressed on Wednesday its belief North Korea fired two ballistic missiles into the East Sea, possibly towards the empire's exclusive economic zone.

Meanwhile, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) responded to the claims by sending a group of experts to the site to examine the event, as cited by Yonhap News Agency.

The news comes just days after North Korea announced it has successfully performed the launch of its new long-range cruise missile.
