North Korea test-fires multiple rocket launchers near west coast, Seoul says

Launches could be a part of DPRK's summer military training that usually kicks off in July, expert tells NK News

North Korea tested what appeared to be multiple rocket launcher systems (MLRS) from near the country’s west coast on Sunday, according to South Korean authorities, in what one expert assessed could be a part of the DPRK’s summer military training.

The South Korean military detected “trails” from the artillery from 6:21 p.m. to 6:37 p.m. KST, Seoul’s Joint Chief of Staff (JCS) said, about a month after reporting a similar MLRS test on a Sunday.
