    SEOUL: North Korea appears prepared to fire medium-range Nodong ballistic missiles amid heightened inter-Korean tensions over the ongoing South Korea-US military exercises, a source here said on Tuesday. On Monday, Pyongyang fired two short-range missiles into the East Sea in an apparent protest against the start of the annual Key Resolve and Foal Eagle drills. “We’ve detected signs that North Korea has deployed two transporter erector launchers (TELs) since a few days back in its Nodong missile station in North Pyongan Province,” the military source said on condition of anonymity. “We are closely monitoring their movements bearing in mind chances of their actual launches.” North Korea last fired two Nodong missiles in March last year using the launchers, the first launch in nearly five years.
