SEOUL: North Korea fired what seemed several land-to-ship rockets off its east coast on Thursday (Jun 8), South Korea’s military said, the most recent in a fast-paced series of missile tests defying world pressure and dangers of more sanctions.The launches comes less than a week after the United Nations Security Council passed fresh sanctions on the reclusive state, which said it would continued to pursue its nuclear and weapons programme without delay.The projectiles were launched Thursday morning from the North Korean seaside city of Wonsan, South Korea’s Office of Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.South Korean President Moon-Jae-in has actually been briefed on the current launch, the armed force stated, declining to offer more details.Thursday’s launch is the 4th missile test by the North considering that Moon took office on May 10 pledging to take part in dialogue with Pyongyang.Under third-generation

leader Kim Jong Un, North Korea has been performing such tests at an extraordinary speed in an effort to develop an intercontinental ballistic rocket(ICBM )capable of striking the mainland United States.
