WONSAN, NORTH KOREA β€” North Korea launched two unidentified short-range ballistic missiles on July 30 from the Kalma area near the eastern port of Wonsan, according to a statement from South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The first missile was launched at 5:06 a.m., while the second was launched at 5:27 a.m.

Both of the missiles were estimated to have flown around 250 kilometers at an approximate altitude of 30 kilometers before landing in the Sea of Japan.

North Korea fired two other ballistic missiles, identified as KN-23, last week, according to the Korean Herald.

One flew around 430 kilometers while the other flew around 690 kilometers.

Both flew at an estimated altitude of 50 kilometers before landing in the Sea of Japan.

North Korea had previously said the missiles were intended as a warning to the South, over its joint military exercises with the U.S. South Korea has said that the consecutive missile launches aren't reducing tensions on the Korean Peninsula and called for North Korea to "halt these acts."
