US Navy Destroyer USS Fitzgerald deployed on Missile Defense mission in Korean Peninsula

According to a Pentagon official, the US Navy deployed one of its Destroyers off the Korean Peninsula amid growing tensions with North Korea. USS Fitzgerald, who had sailed to South Korea recently to participate in joint military exercises, was sent to the south-west peninsula instead of returning to its home port in Japan, the official said, who wished to remained unnamed. This deployment is a cautious initiative that can offer "more options for missile defense if the need arises," the source added.
