The two rockets are evaluated to not surpass 15 meters long, making them shorter than the North's current ICBMs.

The DPRK seems to have deliberately released information about the new rockets to send a "key message" to the approaching administration of Donald Trump who takes office on Friday.

The authorities didn't give the correct date to when they are going to launch the missiles, in spite of the fact that it is evaluated that the U.S. identified them on Monday when the U.S. Naval force speedily moved its ocean based X-group radar framework toward the western part of the Pacific Ocean from oceans off Hawaii.
