    North Korea fired two unidentified projectiles toward the East Sea on Monday.

    The Joint Chiefs of Staff here said the launch, Pyongyang's fourth missile test of this year, took place at 8.56. a.m.

    It came just three days after the North fired what are presumed to be two short-range ballistic missiles that it later claimed were railway-borne guided missiles.

    Last week, the North warned of a "stronger and certain reaction" to the U.S.' fresh sanctions against several North Koreans involved in the regime's weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs.

    The North also test-fired a supposed hypersonic missile on Jan. 5.
