The defence ministry started deploying the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) system in Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi in western Japan, which Pyongyang warned could be along its missiles' flight path, public broadcaster NHK said.
Japan said on Saturday it has installed anti-missile systems in several parts of the country following North Korea's threat to launch four ballistic missiles towards the American island of Guam.
Japan's missile defense program includes the Maritime Self-Defense Force's (SDF) Aegis destroyers, aimed at shooting down airborne missiles, and the Air Self-Defense Force's PAC-3 system, which is aimed at countering missiles that evade Aegis interceptors.
Tokyo has deployed Aegis ships in the Sea of Japan, and is on alert 24 hours sharing information with the United States.Читайте также: Charlottesville car crash suspect ID'd as 20-year-old Ohio man
North Korea on Thursday warned that it was preparing four intermediate-range missiles (IRBM) launches towards the USA territory of Guam, according to a state-media report.
Japan's prime minister has said he will do everything he can to protect people as tensions escalate over North Korean plans to send missiles flying over Japan toward Guam.
On August 8, Donald Trump had warned that if North Korea does not stop threatening the USA, it "will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
