North Korea fired an unidentified projectile toward the East Sea on Wednesday, South Korea’s military said, in the recalcitrant regime’s 14th show of force this year, Trend reports citing Yonhap News Agency.

The South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) announced the launch in a text message sent to reporters. Details were not immediately available.

The latest launch came after the North test-fired what it claimed to be a tactical guided weapon on April 16.

Concerns have persisted that the North could continue to carry out provocations, such as another intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) or a nuclear test.
