A fresh force assessment for North Korea

Days after North Korean leader Kim Yong-un declared that he would use “force against force” to defend his country’s sovereignty, the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff announced that Pyongyang fired a series of artillery shells into the Sea of Japan on Sunday, promising a firm response to these ongoing provocations.

The shells were most likely launched from traditional missile launchers since they flew shorter and faster than ballistic missiles, and their height was very limited and short-range.
