SEOUL, Sept. 4 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's military said Monday it conducted a combined live-fire exercise in response to North Korea's sixth nuclear test a day earlier.

The training involved the country's Hyunmoo ballistic missile and the F-15K fighter jets.

In the drill, the Hyunmoo surface-to-surface missile and the F-15K's long-range air-to-ground missile accurately hit designated targets in the East Sea, according to the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).

The South's military, in particular, said the range to the simulated targets were set in consideration of the North's Punggye-ri nuclear test site in its northeastern province.
