The missile lifted off from the North’s capital region at 1:49 a.m. (12:49 p.m. EDT Thursday), according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The north's military said it took "strong military countermeasures" after South Korean artillery-fire drills on Thursday, according to North Korea's official KCNA news agency.
"Taking a serious note of this provocative action by the South Korean military in the frontline area, we took strong military countermeasures," KCNA quoted a spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA) as saying.
"The KPA sends a stern warning to the South Korean military inciting military tension in the frontline area with reckless action."
Meanwhile, a group of about 10 North Korean military aircraft had carried out a sortie close to the border dividing the two countries late Thursday and early Friday, prompting Seoul to scramble F-35 fighter jets.
The 10 aircraft from the North flew as close as 7 miles from the inter-Korean border, according to South Korea’s military.#North Korea #Ballistic Missile 22-10-14
