A leading US thinktank has revealed the exact date for the next North Korean ballistic missile test – and it looks set to come just before Christmas.
Kim Jong-Un will send a terrifying message if he goes ahead with the planned Christmas blast in just over three weeks time.
According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), the next “provocation” will take place on the 17th December.
The shock prediction followed an unprecedented data analysis which showed there was “elevated chances of provocations over the next 14 to 30 days”.
Speculation has been mounting over when the North Korea will next conduct a missile test after the communist regime has remained quiet for over two months now.
An international expert from the Washington DC-based thinktank said the planned test means a “ballistic missile test expected on 17th of December”.
This date coincides with the death of Kim Jong-Un’s father, Kim Jong-Il, who passed away nearly six years ago.
The launch will involve a “demonstration of a weapon of mass destruction,” which will follow an annual military exercise in the country that month.
