North Korea launched 18 short-range missiles on Sunday evening from its east coast.
South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff believes the missiles were likely FROG-7 artillery short-range, surface-to-surface missiles, which flew about 70 kilometers before falling into the East Sea.
The missiles were first introduced to the North in the 1960s from the former Soviet Union.
The Joint Chiefs said it's maintaining high level of combat readiness against future launches.

How much did each of these 18 missiles cost? Sounds like it was a waste of money shooting them into the sea. Songun is a waste of money. The money and food should used for all the people.
