North Korea reportedly launched multiple unidentified short-range missiles on Saturday.
Word of the missile firings was reported by Yonhap News Agency, which cited South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).
The country “fired multiple rounds of unidentified missiles from its east-coast town of Wonsan in the northeastern direction,” the agency said, citing a news release. The launches took place “between 9:06 a.m. and 9:27 a.m.” local time, according to the outlet.
The missiles were reportedly launched toward the East Sea.
If the South Korean military reports are correct, this will be North Korea's first missile launch since November 2017, when it launched a much larger Hwasong-15 ICBM (below). Also the first from the Hodo site since April 2015 (Sources: NK News, CNS/NTI) pic.twitter.com/T8wcGrw6tQ

The Pentagon did not confirm the launches for Fox News, saying officials were still looking into the report.
If the firings are confirmed, they’ll mark North Korea’s first missile test since November 2017.
Earlier this year, President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met in Vietnam for their second summit, but negotiations fizzled. The two world leaders had previously met in Singapore in June 2018, with both signing a document promising to work for “complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.”
