Written by on November 2, 2022

North and South Korea have fired a number of missiles into waters near each other’s coasts in a marked escalation of hostilitie

The North launched its most missiles in a single day, with reports recording at least 23, including one that landed less than 60kilometers off the South’s city of Sokcho.

Seoul responded with warplanes firing three air-to-ground missiles over the disputed maritime demarcation line.

Later, Pyongyang fired six more missiles and a barrage of 100 artillery shells.

Meanwhile, North Korea says the launches are in response to large-scale military exercises current being held by South Korea and the United States, which it calls “aggressive and provocative”.
