North Korea launched four short-range ballistic missiles (SRBMs) into the Yellow Sea at 6:51 a.m.(KST) from Chongju and Pihyon in North Pyongan Province, followed by three SRBMs into the East Sea at 8:51 a.m. from Wonsan, Kangwon Province. One of those three SRBMs landed in the South of the Northern Limit Line (NLL), which serves as the de facto inter-Korean maritime border. The SRBM landed in the sea 167 kilometers northwest of the island but only 57 kilometers northeast of the South Korean coastal city of Sokcho and 34 kilometers outside the South's territorial waters. This is the first time North Korea has fired a missile toward South Korean territory.
At 9:12 a.m., North Korea fired an additional 10 suspected surface-to-air missiles into the East Sea from Nakwon, Chongpyong, and Sinpo in South Hamgyong Province and into the Yellow Sea from Onchon and Hwajin-ri in South Pyongan and Kwa-il in South Hwanghae Province.
From 11:10 a.m., in response to the North's provocations, South Korea's F-15K and KF-16 warplanes fired three precision strike air-to-surface SLAM-ER missiles into high seas north of the NLL.
Around 1:27 p.m., North Korea fired more than 100 artillery shells from Kosong area, Kangwon Province, into the eastern maritime buffer zone. The buffer zone was set under the 2018 inter-Korean military agreement.
From 4:30 p.m. to 5:10 p.m., Pyongyang fired 6 more missiles, including suspected surface-to-air ones, into the East and Yellow Seas.
South Korea and the U.S. started a large joint air exercise dubbed Vigilant Storm on Oct. 31, mobilizing more than 240 aircraft, including F-35A stealth fighters from the South Korean Air Force and F-35B, U-2 from the U.S. military.

At around 7:40 a.m., North Korea fired ICBM, believed by experts to be a Hwasong-17 type, from the Sunan area near Pyongyang. It flew about 760 kilometers, peaking at an altitude of approximately 1,920km and reaching a top speed of Mach 15, according to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff. Although second-stage separation did occur, the detached warhead failed to maintain its intended trajectory and splashed into the East Sea just outside South Korea's exclusive economic zone around 8:10.
At around 8:39 a.m., North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles from Kaechon in South Pyongan Province. The missiles traveled approximately 330 kilometers, reaching a maximum altitude of around 70 kilometers and a top speed of Mach 5.
In response to North Korea's firing of an ICBM, South Korea and the United States have agreed to hold joint air drills, Vigilant Storm, through by Oct. 5. In the wake of the announcement of the decision to extend the drills, the North shot three additional SRBMs into the East Sea between around 9:35 p.m. and 9:49 p.m.(KST) from Koksan County in North Hwanghae Province.
