North Korea Missile Test: Again dictator Kim Jong, fired another ballistic missile, warned America and South Korea
Dictator Kim Jong Un ordered a “sudden launching drill” at 8 am on Saturday. During this, the Hwasong-15 missile was tested for the first time after 2017. According to North Korea’s KCNA, this missile was fired from Pyongyang airport. Japan also said that the missile flew over the economic zone for 66 minutes, with their analysts indicating that it was capable of reaching the mainland United States.
