Japan’s Defense Ministry has announced that North Korea has fired what appears to be a ballistic missile. Government officials say the missile appears to have landed outside Japan’s exclusive economic zone.

South Korea’s military said Pyongyang fired a ballistic missile toward the Sea of ​​Japan on Sunday morning.

North Korea has fired missiles with unprecedented frequency this year. Japanese officials say the launch is the 35th this time in 2022.

Among them, 16 occurred from the end of September to the end of November. Pyongyang claims to have launched a new intercontinental ballistic missile on November 18.

Meanwhile, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said on Sunday, citing the South Korean military, that North Korea had fired an unidentified ballistic missile toward the Sea of ​​Japan.

North Korea has already fired dozens of missiles at South Korea since the start of 2022, including a test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile in November.

Japan has been the target of North Korean missile tests before. In October and November, North Korea fired ballistic test missiles that likely ended up in the Sea of ​​Japan.
