The South Korean military found several “trajectories” believed to be artillery shells. In their opinion, the launches were made from multiple rocket launchers
The DPRK fired missiles, presumably from multiple launch rocket systems, Yonhap reports, citing the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Republic of Korea.
According to the South Korean military, “trajectories” of what are believed to be artillery shells were detected between 18:21 and 18:37 (between 12:21 and 12:37 Moscow time).
How many were produced shots, the military did not specify. According to the source of the agency, two trajectories were observed.
The last time the DPRK opened fire with rocket weapons
June 12, a week after it launched eight short-range ballistic missiles towards the Sea of Japan, recalls Yonhap. The latest launch came amid heightened fears of another possible nuclear test or other provocation, the agency said.
Seoul expects that Pyongyang may conduct its seventh nuclear test after the lifting of coronavirus restrictions, timed to coincide with an important anniversary. On July 10, the DPRK celebrates the 28th anniversary of the death of the founder of the DPRK, Kim Il Sung.
In North Korea, since the end of April, since the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic, more than 4.7 million cases of coronavirus infection have been detected. Pyongyang has linked the outbreak of COVID-19 with the launch of balloons from South Korea. This was denied in Seoul.
