After North Korea launched 8 short-range ballistic missiles in a row last Sunday, tensions rose in the region, and a new step came from South Korea and the United States.
South Korea and the US Air Force almost intimidated North Korea in the joint flight exercise in which 20 fighter jets participated.
In the statement made by the Ministry of National Defense of South Korea, it was noted that the exercise was carried out today off the west coast of South Korea.
It was stated that the joint flight included 16 South Korean warplanes, including the F-35A, F-15K and KF-16, and 4 F-16 warplanes related to the United States.
It was emphasized that the exercise “shows the strong capability and determination of the two countries to respond swiftly and genuinely to North Korea’s provocations”.
