North Korea moves missile platforms almost daily

Asahi reported on the disclosure by a military source based in Seoul that North Korea has been relocating several mobile missile launchers daily since mid-October, speculating that the Kim regime may be trying to confuse and exhaust reconnaissance and surveillance operations by the U.S., Japan, and South Korea. According to the source, multiple platforms equipped with ballistic missiles have been moved from one location to another almost daily, although no signs have been detected of an imminent launch. The daily added that since the Chinese strongly pressured the Kim regime not to stage provocations during the Communist Party’s Congress in mid-October, the chances are relatively high that Pyongyang may elect to launch a missile in the near future.
