North Korean missile launch triggers evacuation order in Japan

Authorities warn Hokkaido residents to seek shelter, stating missile expected to fall near island, but later lift notice

North Korea launched one intermediate- or long-range ballistic missile Thursday morning, prompting Japanese authorities to issue evacuation warnings to residents of the northern island of Hokkaido.

Japan’s defense ministry detected the launch before 7:27 a.m. KST and said it was expected to land in the vicinity of Hokkaido around 8 a.m.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said a single “intermediate- or longer-range ballistic missile” was launched on “a vertical angle” from the “Pyongyang area” around 7:23 a.m. and that it flew around 621 miles (1,000 km) before landing in the East Sea (Sea of Japan).

Japanese authorities issued a “correction” to the evacuation order just before 8:20 a.m., saying the missile had fallen and did not pose a danger to residents. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida told reporters Thursday morning that the missile did not land in Japanese territory.

It appears to be North Korea’s first missile test in over two weeks and comes as Pyongyang has not responded to routine inter-Korean military hotline calls for seven days, according to Seoul.

State media revealed details on March 28of short-range and cruise missiles launches, while showing DPRK leader Kim Jong Un inspecting a nuclear warhead designed to fit on such missiles aimed at South Korea. North Korea also reportedly conducted another “underwater nuclear attack drone” test last week.

Earlier this week, Kim reportedly reviewed“frontline attack operation plans” and called for taking more “practical measures” at a Central Military Commission (CMC) meeting. The country launched an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) days after another CMC meeting last month where Kim used similar language.

The latest launch comes two days before the 111th birthday of founding leader Kim Il Sung, known as the Day of the Sun holiday, the biggest on the North Korean calendar.

Precedent suggests North Korean state media could publish details and photos of the missile on Friday morning, though Pyongyang has also refrained from releasing information about multiple launch events in the last year.

The last time Hokkaido residents received evacuation warnings was in October, when North Korea launched a Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) over Japan and into the Pacific Ocean.

Cameras also captured an ICBM coming down off the west coast of Hokkaido in February.

Hokkaido, the northernmost of Japan’s main islands, is known for its volcanoes, natural hot springs (onsen) and ski areas.
North Korea isn’t very well renowned for their launch capabilities.
