The military operation in Ukraine began last Thursday at the behest of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The only discussion in the world after that was about the Ukraine war. But four more notable incidents have occurred in the world, according to Qatar-based Al Jazeera.
North Korea fires missiles again
North Korea fired a missile into the sea on Sunday. This was stated by North Korea’s neighbor Japan. North Korea has resumed firing missiles as the world’s attention is focused on the war in Ukraine after Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine.
Japan’s Defense Minister Nubuo Kishi said the North Korean missile went about 300 kilometers away and hit the sea outside North Korea’s north coast and Japan’s special economic zone. The missile is capable of hitting targets at a maximum distance of 600 km.
The Japanese Defense Minister said that no ship or warplane was damaged in the sea by the missile fired by North Korea.
Nubo Kishi told reporters: “The international community is not thinking much about Russia’s military aggression in Ukraine. If North Korea is deliberately misleading by launching missiles, then such an act is absolutely unforgivable.
Meanwhile, South Korean officials have also expressed deep concern over the launch of a North Korean missile from the capital, Pyongyang.

Tensions between the two neighbors have risen since the Taliban returned to power in Afghanistan in August last year. Pakistan alleges that armed groups are planning attacks on Pakistan using the Afghan border. During this period there have been several attacks from Afghanistan to Pakistan.
However, it has denied allegations that Pakistani armed groups are helping militants. Islamabad has built fences along their 2,600 km border. This line drawn during the colonial period is known as the Durald Line. This is the international border between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
