North Korea fired more projectile missiles into the sea early Saturday in a likely rebuke of joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea that the North has long regarded as a dress rehearsal for invasion.

Pentagon officials told Fox News the missiles were fired from North Korea’s east coast into the Sea of Japan. The sources would not confirm how many missiles were launched.

The North Korean missile tests, which Trump has repeatedly played down, come amid stalled diplomatic talks with the United States on the North’s nuclear program.
