U.S., South Korea Fired Multiple Missiles in Response to North Korean Launches

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff stated that South Korea and the United States successively fired eight surface-to-surface missiles off the east coast of South Korean at 4:45 a.m. June 6th. The day before, North Korea launched eight short-range ballistic missiles from at least four different locations, possibly setting a record for a single-day missile test launch.
North Korea’s eight missiles flew between 110-670 kilometers, with maximum altitudes distributed between 25-80 kilometers and speeds of Mach 3 to 6, the South Korean military noted. North Korea has conducted a series of missile launches this year, ranging from hypersonic weapons to the first test launch of its largest intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in nearly five years.
The South Korean military strongly condemned North Korea’s ballistic missile launches and sternly urged North Korea to immediately cease actions that increase military tensions and security concerns on the Korean Peninsula. The joint surface-to-surface missile fire by South Korea and the U.S. demonstrates that South Korea will maintain constant vigilance and the capability to immediately strike the source of provocation with precision while maintaining command and support forces, even if North Korea launches missile provocations from multiple locations.
