Japan Alerts Air Defenses To Shoot Down N. Korean Satellite

Japan has put its missile air defense systems on high alert after North Korea threatened to launch a satellite over its territory. North Korea previously notified Japan that it would launch its first military spy satellite which is expected to fly over Japanese territory.

Ballistic missile Defenses on Alert

The Japanese military vowed to take down any projectile that could potentially violate its territorial integrity and has at once put its high-tech ballistic missile systems on high alert. North Korea is expected to launch the military spy satellite between May 31 and June 11. Japan’s reaction is justified as it is very clear that the North Korean satellite is a military satellite that’ll prove to be useful in future war against its enemies.
