Four ballistic missiles were launched by the Korean People's Army during a military drill at an undisclosed location in North Korea, in a picture dated March 7, 2017.

North Korea fired two short-range missiles on Thursday, its second such test in less than a week.

The U.S. and South Korean responses to the launches have been muted, with U.S. President Donald Trump and other officials emphasising the missiles are not the large, intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) capable of reaching the United States.

Early Thursday morning, the DPRK test-fired two short-range projectiles from its Sino-ri launch site that flew a distance of 260 and 170 miles.

North Korea's missile tests may indicate Kim is stepping back from diplomacy which posts a serious ongoing challenge for the Trump administration and America's allies.

On Thursday, Trump appeared to hold the door open for more talks with North Korea.

Trump, who has said that he and Kim have a good relationship, added that he might eventually lose faith in the North Korean leader.

The ship, in what USA officials say was a clear act of concealment, also turned off an automatic signal system meant to alert other ships of its course and location.

Food shortages in North Korea have been aggravated by the worldwide sanctions imposed in 2016, which have choked the regime's cash flow, making it hard for the state to import food.

On Saturday, North Korea launched a volley of short-range projectiles from the east coast city of Wonsan just days after the USA tested another Minuteman III on a similar trajectory.

During the flare-up, Israel said it carried out its first targeted assassination in Gaza after a hiatus of several years. Omar's comments follow terrorists firing over 600 rockets into southern Israel, killing at least four Israelis.

"They were smaller missiles, they're short range missiles", President Trump said. The Department of Justice the vessel, Wise Honest, was approaching USA territorial waters in American Samoa.

It was confirmed later that the projectiles might have been missiles, news agency AFP reported.

"Kim Jong Un has given the United States until the end of the year to rethink its approach", he said.

North Korea and the United States are now deadlocked in diplomacy meant to rid the North of its nuclear arsenal.

Experts have estimated the size of North Korea's nuclear arsenal at anywhere between 20 and 60 warheads.

Kim declared an end to the testing of nuclear weapons and long-range missiles during rapid rapprochement a year ago.
