North Korea test fired yet another ballistic missile on Sunday, only a week after the country's last test launch.

This missile, launched from about 50 miles north of Pyonyang, flew out about 300 miles said the South Korean military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to CNN.

A senior Trump administration official identified the projectile as a medium-range ballistic missile, according to a report from ABC News.

"U.S. Pacific Command detected and tracked what we assess was a North Korean missile launch at 09:59 p.m. Hawaii time May 20. The launch of a medium range ballistic missile occurred near Pukchang. The missile was tracked until it landed in the Sea of Japan," said Cmdr. David Benham, a U.S. Pacific Command spokesman, in a statement.
