A new short-range ballistic missile operation is launched by North korea which is quite similar to a Scud, this operation turns out to held on Monday morning and the missile flew about 280 miles which landed inside Japan's exclusive economic zone.

Yoshihide Suga, Japan's chief cabinet secretary said "The firing of the ballistic missile of this time is extremely problematic in terms of safety of aircraft and ships," he also added in the emergency conference that "This also clearly violates resolutions adopted by the United Nations Security Council."

Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe, who recently returned from a G-7 meeting in Italy, said that Japan will work with the US to dissaued North Korea from doing so. The latest missile operations are briefed to President Donald Trump says white house.

"We continue to monitor North Korea's actions closely" adds Pacific command and said "the missile was tracked for six minutes until it landed in the sea of Japan". The missile was launched shortly after 5 a.m.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis,  before the latest launch says that war with North Korea would "probably the worst kind of fighting in most people's lifetimes."

North Korea's conventional weapons could probably cause a huge damage in South Korea too, as half the population lives in the Seoul area, which is within firing range of North Korean artillery. In targeting US, North Korea is also a problem for south korea.

After the incident, Moon Jae-in, South Korea's new president, ordered an emergency national security council meeting to discuss the latest launch
