Tensions rise as North Korea launches a ballistic missile over Japan

North Korea is escalating tensions by launching a ballistic missile over Japan, causing citizens to scramble as air sirens blared. The last time that happened was in 2017, and although no one was injured either time, the risk of the missile landing short or malfunctioning is a direct threat to the Japanese people. The U.S. and South Korea are responding with a precision bombing drill of their own.
