Jan. 5, 2022 Around 08:10 a.m.(KST), North Korea fired a hypersonic missile into the East Sea from Mupyung-ri, the Jagang Province area. Japan's Defense Ministry said a ballistic missile had flown about 500 km before landing in waters outside Japan's exclusive economic zone. Hypersonic glide missiles can avoid detection longer than ballistic missiles because they fly towards targets at lower altitudes(thereby evading radar systems) at 6,200 km per hour or five times the speed of sound. North Korea had not responded to repeated calls from South Korea and the United States to return to denuclearization talks. The Biden administration said he would meet North Korea "anytime, anywhere" without preconditions. KCNA, North Korea's state-run media, reported that the hypersonic gliding warhead detached from the missile and flew 120km laterally before it precisely hit its target 700km away. This ballistic missile launch - the first in 2022- came 78 days after the North&
Nov. 2, 2022 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&
North Korea's food insecurity has worsened due to COVID-19 lockdowns and severe floods. However, Kim Jong-un has ignored North Korean's agony of hunger, only o bsessed with illicit activities to develop nuclear weapons and missiles. North Korea raises illegal funds through cyber crimes like crypto heists & ransomware attacks. It won't be forgiven by North Koreans as well as international society.
