North Korea fired two suspected short-range ballistic missiles from an airport in its capital city of Pyongyang on Monday (local time), South Korea's military reported, according to Reuters.

Axar.az reports that Japan's government also reported the launch, with chief cabinet secretary Hirokazu Matsuno condemning the launches as a threat to the region's peace and security.

The launch appeared to involve two SRBMs fired east from Sunan Airfield in Pyongyang, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

The launches mark North Korea’s fourth missile test in recent weeks. On January 5, Pyongyang said it had test-fired a "hypersonic missile" that successfully hit a target.

The North said the projectile hit the "set target in waters 1,000 km off" and added that leader Kim Jong Un attended the firing.

This past Friday, the country test-fired ballistic missiles from a train in an apparent reprisal over fresh sanctions imposed by the Biden administration last week for its continuing test launches.

North Korea regularly launches ballistic missiles and had a series of such tests in late 2021, the most recent of which was in October when it test-fired a new ballistic missile from a submarine.
