According to South Korea’s military, North Korea launched at least 17 ballistic and other missiles on Wednesday in the span of just seven hours and has since fired almost 100 artillery shells into the East Sea.

The North reportedly fired four short-range ballistic missiles (SRBMs) into the Yellow Sea from North Pyongan Province at around 6:51 in the morning, according to the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).

At about 8:51 a.m., the JCS also picked up the North’s firing of three further SRBMs from a location near or within the eastern coastal city of Wonsan. Tensions along the inter-Korean border increased after one of them landed close to South Korea’s territorial waters.

The North launched a ballistic missile past the NLL in a southerly direction for the first time since the partition of the two Koreas.

Pyongyang launched around 10 missiles, including what are thought to be SRBMs and ground-to-surface missiles, into the East Sea and the Yellow Sea beginning at 9:12 a.m., according to the JCS.

The eastern buffer zone was established by an inter-Korean military agreement agreed upon on September 19, 2018, to ease border tensions. At around 1:27 p.m., the South Korean military observed more than 100 artillery shells being fired from Kosong County, Kangwon Province, into this area.

According to reports, South Korea has issued a formal warning to North Korea, pleading with the defiant Kim Jong-un dictatorship to immediately stop all provocations.
