After various experts warned about an impending North Korean ballistic missile test “within days”, at least on this occasion they were spot on. The news just broke as Yonhap reported citing South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff about the crazy fat kid’s regime (Kim Jong-un) firing yet another ballistic missile after a 74 days hiatus.

North Korea’s latest ballistic missile test is the first since September 15th and also marks a premiere, being the first time the Pyongyang has aggravated the US and nations in the region since the POTUS labeled North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. The South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said:

“North Korea launched an unidentified ballistic missile eastward from the vicinity of Pyongsong, South Pyongan Province, at dawn today,”

However, according to Japan’s NHK, not one but three projectiles were fired, of which just one fell inside Japan’s EEZ.

Even if the type of missile was not identified, according to the Pentagon who confirmed the launch, the missile was shot from a mobile launcher. South Korean army reports that the missile flew eastward and landed in Japan’s  Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). As per a Pentagon report, the missile launch took place at 1:30pm EST. In response to Pyongyang’s move, South Korea conducted a precision missile-firing drill. Before splashing in Japan’s coastal waters, the North Korean missile flew for 50 minutes.
