Pyongyang launched an “unidentified projectile” into the East Sea on Monday, South Korean media reported.


A projectile was shot from a site located near the country’s Dongchang-ri long-range missile launch center at around 7:36 and fell into the East Sea after flying over the country, Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said as cited by the Yonhap news agency.



​The launch occurred amid the joint drills between South Korean and American militaries, indicating an “apparent” protest from Pyongyang, Yonhap noted.
