North Korea has finally tested (successfully) a new missile — and boy it is a doozy. After the April 15 parade, we called this missile the KN-08 Mod Odd and the KN-08 +/-. But North Korea calls it the Hwasong-12 and it contains a surprise: the brand-new “indigenous” engine that North Korea debuted in March.
Reinforcements from the Syrian Arab Army, the National Defense Forces, and Iraqi PMU-affiliated militias continue to pour from all across Syria to east Suweida and Eastern Qalamoun ahead of an anticipated massive offensive aimed at recapturing the Tanf Border Crossing which lies a 100 km from the recently-captured Zaza Checkpoint along the Damascus-Baghdad Highway.
Launch of a ballistic missile Hwasong-12, which took place yesterday in the DPRK. The missile is capable not only of hitting U.S. bases and other targets in South Korea and Japan, but with a margin to fly to US base on GUAM.
