North and South Korea fire missiles near sea border
November 2, 2022 - North and South Korea have fired missiles into waters near each other's coasts in a marked escalation of hostilities. The North launched its most missiles in a single day – at least 23.
South Korea 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, according to the BBC.
The North 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”, the BBC said.
