According to the country's military, South Korea sent out roughly 80 fighter airplanes after spotting a lot of North Korean warplanes over a four-hour period on Friday, escalating tensions in the region.

A day after Pyongyang is thought to have performed the failed I.B.M. test, the South Korean military said in a statement that it had seen roughly 180 North Korean military aircraft between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. local time (ICBM).

As the "Vigilant Storm" joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea, including hundreds of aircraft and thousands of service men from both nations, began on Monday, tensions on the Korean Peninsula started to rise.

South Korea responded with three surface-to-air missiles after North Korea launched 23 missiles from its east and west coasts on Wednesday, the most it has ever shot in a single day, accusing the allies of engaging in provocative behavior. The statement stated that an undefined number of F-35A stealth fighter jets were deployed by South Korea on Friday, and the South Korean warplanes taking part in the current joint exercises also "kept a readiness posture."

Following the alleged ICBM launch on Thursday, the US and South Korea stated they will prolong the drills for one additional day until November 5. According to state media, a North Korean official criticized the decision as "extremely hazardous and deceptive."

Later, US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin warned North Korea of engaging in "irresponsible and hazardous acts" after meeting with his South Korean counterpart at the Pentagon.

"We have already stated that these kinds of operations have the potential to destabilize the region. Therefore, we urge them to stop doing so and start having meaningful conversations instead," Austin stated.

On Friday, the UN Security Council is anticipated to convene to address Pyongyang's latest missile tests. An open meeting had been requested by the US, UK, France, Albania, Ireland, and Norway, according to a spokesperson for the US Mission to the UN.

Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the US ambassador to the UN, criticized North Korea's activities in an interview with CNN on Wednesday, claiming Pyongyang has violated numerous Security Council resolutions.

According to Thomas-Greenfield, the UN would "place pressure" on China and Russia to strengthen and expand these sanctions. Although she stated that it was "on the President's mind," she would not specify whether US President Joe Biden will discuss sanctions with President Xi of China at the G20.
