Seoul’s military reported that North Korea launched at least two missiles from a submarine over the weekend.

The incident occurred amid an upcoming South Korea-U.S. joint military exercise scheduled for this week.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) disclosed that the missile was fired from the eastern coastal city of Sinpo on Sunday morning, but did not provide additional information at the time.

“While strengthening its monitoring and vigilance, our military is maintaining a full readiness posture in close cooperation with the United States,” the JCS said in a statement, according to Yonhap.
