Lil’ Kim is at it again.

North Korea fired “several unidentified short-range projectiles” from Kittaeryong, Kangwon province, into the sea east of the Korean Peninsula, the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

The projectiles flew about 250 kilometers (155 miles) into the Sea of Japan, or East Sea, the Saturday statement said.
“Our military is closely monitoring for North Korean additional provocation and strengthened surveillance and security postures and maintaining readiness postures,” the South Korean release said.
North Korea has conducted a series of ballistic missile tests this year, increasing tensions with the United States, South Korea and Japan.
There aren’t many details beyond this at the moment, but all of the major news outlets are reporting it.
Meanwhile, NoKo is getting so aggressive that the New York Times’ opinion people are convincing themselves that the Iranians are good guys by comparison:
