Fresh activity at North Korea nuclear site satellite images reveal

The images purportedly show increased soil deposits at the site

The U.S. -based Web site 38 North reports that significant tunneling excavation is under way at North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear test site, suggesting the area is being prepared for a future nuclear test.

The North Portal, where the last five nuclear tests were conducted, remains dormant with water draining from the portal entrance.

Satellite images showed increased activity at the Punggye-ri site, with mining carts and personnel frequently visible, and excavation waste piles growing, the respected 38North website said Thursday. It has also slightly expanded in size. The young North Korean despot also ordered the mass production and rapid deployment of nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles to bolster the state nuclear force. We are only 11 days into 2018, and Kim Jong Un is reportedly preparing another nuclear test.

The tremors included two earthquakes immediately after the test: the first is believed to have been caused by the test itself, the second by the collapse of one of the tunnels.

These expert observers note that while the North Portal, where North Korea tested a suspected staged thermonuclear weapon - a hydrogen bomb - in early September past year, remains dormant, there is plenty of activity at the West Portal.

On October 10 past year, a tunnel at the underground nuclear site reportedly collapsed killing up to 200 people.

After visiting Pyongyang, Vorontsov said that tensions were skyhigh and soldiers were on high alert.

In another article on 38North, Alexander Vorontsov, the head of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russia Academy of Sciences, was quoted as saying that North Korean diplomats were extremely serious about the possibility of war between North Korea and the U.S.

North Korean intelligence had reported "construction had resumed at a fourth tunnel (West Portal), making it unable to be used "for a considerable amount of time".

"These [North Korea] officials feared that the US was already trying to shape the battlefield for a military operation against the North, and that South Koreans do not seem to have grasped the reality that the Trump administration is set on a course for preventive war".

He said North Korea was not bluffing and actively preparing for war.
