This latest launch is, according to theIndependent, closer to the border than previous such incidents.

South Korea has for some time insisted it is ready for an attack from the DPRK, maintaining close surveillance and working in tandem with the USA.

In a stark warning, the US has now warned the DPRK that any attack brought against it or South Korea would spell doom for the current regime, headed by Kim Jong-un.

A report discussing the Pentagon’s National Defense Strategy claimed: “There is no scenario in which the Kim regime could employ nuclear weapons and survive."

North Korea last tested missiles on October 14.

It is expected to involve 140 fighters from South Korea and 100 from the USA.
