Tension is rising between North Korea and Japan after a missile launch from the North Korean government. This is the latest of several missile launches by the country that have been a cause of concern for surrounding countries.
This particular launch has caused Japan to issue an evacuation order for its citizens in certain areas, including Hokkaido. The missile, fired by North Korea, flew over the Japanese island, prompting warnings for residents to take cover.
According to South Korea, the missile was a ballistic missile, which means it has the capabilities to carry a nuclear warhead. This news has escalated the situation and further increased tensions with North Korea.
The Japanese government retracted their take-cover warnings after confirming the missile had landed in the Pacific Ocean. However, this latest missile launch has sparked fears of further aggressive action from North Korea in the future.
Many are concerned that this could be a precursor to a larger conflict between the two countries. The Japanese government has called for international action and support to address this escalating situation.
As tensions continue to rise, many are closely watching the situation to see what steps will be taken next by both North Korea and Japan.
