US To Test Unarmed Intercontinental Ballistic Missile

US To Test Unarmed Intercontinental Ballistic Missile”

The U.S. military on Wednesday morning reportedly tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) amid heightened tensions with North Korea.The ICBM was test-launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, an Air Force spokesman told The Hill.

The unarmed United States missile was launched at 2110 BST from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The Air Force Global Strike Command's missile launch is created to test the weapon system's effectiveness, accuracy and readiness, the Air Force said.

The ICBM arced into the night sky from Vandenberg Air Force Base in southern California and traveled approximately 4,200 miles to the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

Global tensions with North Korea have intensified as Pyongyang this year has tested two nuclear devices and numerous missiles, including its first two ICBM launches last month.

North Korea has alarmed the worldwide community by the pace and progress of its missile development program, and in July leader Kim Jong-Un conducted two tests of an ICBM - the first time he had demonstrated ICBM capability.

Another test was conducted by the Air Force Global Strike Command's team on April 26.

Days later, a third test missile launched from the base.

The White House released a statement in response to the missile launch, saying, "North Korea's test launch today of another intercontinental ballistic missile - the second such test in less than a month - is only the latest reckless and risky action by the North Korean regime".

On May 30, the Missile Defense Agency conducted a flight test exercise of a ground-based interceptor that was also launched from the air base.
