North Korea Accidentally Hit Its Own City In Missile Test

North Korea Accidentally Hit Its Own City In Missile Test”

The report states that on April 28, 2017 Kim Jong Un's regime launched a single Hwasong-12/KN17 intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM).

Satellite images from May 2017 reportedly show damage caused by a failed test launch that struck the North Korean city of Tokchon weeks earlier in April, according to a USA government official. It flew 24 miles into the air in the northeastern direction before striking a complex of industrial or agricultural facilities in Tokchon. (Google Maps) The report in The Diplomat references satellite images (not the ones displayed here) that appear to show an impact crater that has apparently since been filled in.

A North Korean ballistic missile failed during a test launch, crashing and exploded in a town and causing damage to buildings and unknown casualties, missile experts have claimed. It carried out ballistic missile launches from Pyongyang's Sunan Airport.

However The Diplomat said it was impossible to ascertain whether there was any loss of life.

The particular experiment was the third attempt by North Korea to flawless its Hwasong-12 missile.

At the time, the regime was busy testing an intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) named Hwasong-12 capable of reaching the USA territory of Guam. So such a failure has the chance of catastrophic disaster in the future.

The Tokyo-based Diplomat news website has reported that a missile test conducted in early 2017 went wrong and landed in a city instead.

There are fears that the likelihood of similar incidents occurring over Pyongyang, the country's capital, remains high.

Despite multiple testing failures, Hwasong-12 missile was successfully test launched on May 14.

North Korea launched an ICBM over Japan into the Pacific Ocean on September 14, and then again on November 29 of previous year.

Moon has joined US -led worldwide efforts to apply more pressure and sanctions on North Korea, but he still favors dialogue as a way to resolve the nuclear standoff.

In his News Year's speech televised nationally, Kim stated: "The United States can never fight a war against me and our state".

Past altercations have also involved Trump calling the North Korea's Supreme Leader as the "little rocket man", whereas, Kim Jong-un called the US President a "dotard" as a sign of insult.
