In the early hours of Thursday, North Korea launched a salvo of around ten ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency, which cited the nation's Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The missile launches occurred around 06:14 local time on Thursday (21:14 GMT on Wednesday). The specific range and flight details of the short-range ballistic missiles remain undisclosed at this time.

Earlier reports had indicated that a single ballistic missile had been fired. This latest aggressive action by North Korea heightens regional tensions and underscores the persistent threat posed by Pyongyang's missile program.

North Korea's missile tests continue to be a source of international concern, prompting responses from neighboring countries and global powers.

The country's ongoing development and testing of ballistic missile technology violate United Nations Security Council resolutions, raising significant security challenges in East Asia.
