On Wednesday, the Japan Air Self-Defense Force (ASDF) conducted a missile defense operations drill in a Tokyo park. According to Japan’s Kyodo news agency, this was the first time in six years that such an exercise had taken place in a “public place” in Japan
The exercise follows the launch earlier this month of a submarine-launched ballistic missile by North Korea into Japan’s exclusive economic zone

The United States flew E-8C surveillance aircraft over areas near the Korean Peninsula, an aviation tracker said Thursday, on an apparent mission to collect intelligence regarding North Korea.

Two E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System aircraft arrived at Kadena Air Base in Japan's Okinawa on Sunday "to resume missions over the Korean Peninsula," Aircraft Spots said in a Twitter post.

The latest DPRK statement describes recent US ICBM testing, calling it a "serious provocation to the DPRK." And uses it to justify it's recent SLBM test and protest recent EU criticism of the test. https://t.co/Agnzz1qkCm
