The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Monday fired one short-range projectile into its east waters, Yonhap News Agency reported.
One Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) official was quoted as saying the DPRK launched one short-range rocket from a site in Chagang Province, just 60 km south of the border between the DPRK and China, at about 10:30 a.m. local time.
The projectile, which flew some 220 km, was presumed to have landed in the DPRK's eastern waters.
It marked the first time for the DPRK to fire a short-range project in the province.
This time again, Pyongyang failed to issue a no-fly, no- navigation warning before the launch, endangering civilian ships and airplanes possibly flying through the trajectory.
