SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea on Tuesday launched two projectiles toward the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan, days before the United States and South Korea were scheduled to begin a joint military exercise.

The launch marked the fourth test of projectiles in 13 days by North Korea.

The two projectiles were fired from a province in the southwest of North Korea, and landed in waters off the North’s east coast, the South Korean military said in a statement.
