North Korea Conducts Multiple Projectile Launches

The South Korean National Security Office is currently holding a security review over the launches. This was not a missile launch, number in 2022 still holding at 18.

Update (0945): South Korean General Staff believes the launches today “may have been artillery”.

This is the 19th launch of 2022 and only a week after North Korea launched a salvo of eight short range ballistic missiles.
