The launches come a day after the North apparently fired weapons, presumed to be cruise missiles, into its western sea
North Korea fired off short-range missiles over the weekend after it denounced the U.S. for moving forward with joint military exercises with South Korea, Fox News has confirmed.
North Korea launched two ballistic missiles Thursday -- the second such launch in less than a week.
North Korea test-fired two short-range missiles last weekend after condemning recent joint US-South Korean military exercises, officials said. Senior officials with the Biden administration downplayed the launches on Tuesday, telling reporters they were on the low end of the spectrum of tests conducted by the Communist state.

Old habits die hard, and North Korea has once again greeted new American leadership with the rattling of the saber. Rather than allow the unsettling sound to reverberate unanswered, a more productive course would be to reaffirm progress toward denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula made during the previous administration, and to ask the North to do the same.
State media says the missiles can carry massive payloads, which could include nuclear warheads.
The launches were North Korea’s first ballistic missile tests in nearly a year
The North's official Korean Central News Agency said the two ``new-type tactical guided projectiles'' accurately hit their target off the eastern coast on Thursday.
