North Korea Test Launches Three Missiles

North Korea again tested its missile arsenal on Monday, launching three missiles that US Strategic Command said did not pose any threat. STRATCOM tracked the launch of three missiles—at 3:44 p.m., 3:58 p.m., and 4:35 p.m. Central Daylight Time, including what was presumed to be two Scud tactical ballistic missiles and a No Dong intermediate range ballistic missile near Hwangju, the command said in a statement. North Korea has conducted several test launches recently, including a submarine missile launch on July 11 and two intermediate range ballistic missiles in June. The US and South Korea on July 7 agreed to deploy a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense missile system on the Korean Peninsula, and a joint working group of the two countries are determining where the optimal deployment site will be.
