Kim Jong Un and daughter inspect mass-produced missiles at Pyongyang factory

NK News identifies likely location of daughter’s 1st missile factory inspection as North Korea signals nuclear ambitions

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his young daughter recently inspected dozens of intermediate-range ballistic missiles (IRBMs) at what appears to be a factory near Pyongyang, according to NK News analysis of a new image released in state media Sunday.

The image shows Kim and his daughter walking past at least 26 unassembled Hwasong-12 IRBMs inside a large showroom on an unspecified date. State TV showed the image during its coverage of a six-day party plenum that ended Saturday, underscoring the DPRK leader’s call to “exponentially increase” missile production in the new year.
