South Korea Its military has apologized to North Korea after a missile it launched during an exercise malfunctioned and crashed to the ground on Tuesday. Cousin Koreans panicked, feeling that they were under attack by South Korea, which carried out a missile test earlier in the day. South Korea then offered its apologies for the incident.
A real-fire exercise involving South Korea and the United States would have meant only a show of force. But things got mixed up for a short time.
South Korea launches missiles at North Korea!
What should have been a simple test ended in embarrassment when a short-range Hyumoo-2 ballistic missile crashed at an air force base near the South Korean coastal city of Gangneung. According to media reports, although the missile did not explode, the noise and ensuing fire led some citizens to believe they were under attack.
The South Korean military acknowledged the accident hours after it posted videos showing an orange fireball emerging from an area that internet users described as near a Gangneung air force base.
The military said it was investigating what caused the “anomalous flight” of the South Korean missile, which is an important part of preventive and retaliatory strike strategies against the North.
The accident occurred when South Korean and US troops launched a volley of missiles into the East Sea – also known as the Sea of Japan – in response to North Korea’s first-ever ballistic missile launch at Japan in five years.
