Air Force Scrambles Jets After North Korea Flies 12 Warplanes Near Inter-Korean Border Authored by Jack Phillips via The Epoch Times, At least 12 North Korean military planes flew in formation close to the South Korean border on Thursday, prompting US allies to scramble dozens of fighter jets.

In response, South Korea mobilized 30 fighter jets and scrambled them to near where North Korea carried out its drills, authorities told Yonhap.

Earlier Thursday, North Korea launched two short-range ballistic missiles toward its eastern waters.
