North Korea launched what appeared to be two short-range ballistic missiles (SRBMs) into the East Sea (also known as Sea of Japan) on 25 March, marking the Northeast Asian country’s first ballistic missile launches in about a year.

The SRBMs, the exact type of which has yet to be revealed, were launched from the country’s eastern Hamju County in South Hamgyong Province at 07.06 h and 07.25 h (local time), flew about 450 km, and reached an altitude of 60 km, according to information provided by South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).
