South Korea claims that three short-range guided missiles have been fired by North Korea. The country routinely tests such missiles, but the latest launches come during a period of diplomacy aimed at easing tensions.
North Korea fired short-range guided missiles twice in the morning and once in the afternoon off its east coast. In case of any provocation, the Ministry will keep monitoring the situation and remain on alert.
