North Korea has tested fired four short and mid range missiles into the sea off its west coast area.
In these statements, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said that missiles had a range of about 145km (88 miles).
They were fired from Dongchang ri in the north of the country on Friday afternoon local time.
The North often conducts missiles tests in protest at US South Korean military drills, one of which is ongoing now a days.
The US and South Korea say the annual exercises are for defense training purposes, but Pyongyang calls them a rehearsal for invasion. They are always a trigger for a surge in tensions between the two Koreas.
