North Korea Fires Off Two Short-Range Missiles Into East Sea
March 15, 2013
A military officer has anonymously tipped the Yonhap news agency that North Korea “test fired” two short range missiles into the East Sea Friday.
“The launch was seen as testing its capability for short-range missiles. It seemed to be conducted on a military-unit level, not at a national level,” the source told Yonhap.
This doesn’t just underscore tensions between North and South, but between hawkish generals and their young leader, Kim Jong-Un. “Not at the national level” but on a “military-unit” level seems to imply that the dictator did not order the test.
