NKorea Orders More Ballistic Missile Launches on Pacific Targets
Local Editor

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered more ballistic missile test launches on targets in the Pacific Ocean.

North Korea

Earlier on Tuesday, North Korea test fired Hwasong-12 ballistic missile.

Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said that Pyongyang's ballistic missile had flown over Japan's northern island of Hokkaido before falling into the Pacific Ocean 1,180 kilometers east of the island.

"The latest test launch of a ballistic missile close to reality has become the first military-tactical step of our army in the Pacific Ocean ... From now on, it is necessary to carry out more tests of ballistic missiles on the targets in the Pacific Ocean," Kim said as quoted by South Korean Yonhap news agency.

Kim further called for more active actions of Pyongyang's military in modernizing the missiles and increasing their striking force.

Earlier in August, North Korea said it was considering an attack on an area near the US territory of Guam in the Western Pacific.

The island of Guam is home to several military facilities of the United States, already in tensions with North Korea.
