South Korean jets drop ‘precision’ bombs in reply to North Korean missile test

Training exercise also features US fighters flying alongside ROK jets in show of force against DPRK, Seoul says

Four South Korean fighter jets “precision” bombed a dummy target in the Yellow Sea on Tuesday, according to Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), in a show of force in response to North Korea’s launch of an intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) earlier in the day.

U.S. F-16 fighter jets also practiced attack squadron flights alongside South Korean F-15K jets as part of the training on Tuesday, JCS said.
