“In recent months, North Korea appears to have constructed around 100 permanent garages at the Mirim site, making it nearly impossible to observe what vehicles might be involved” the report said.

“That said, numerous tyre tracks in the newly concreted area servicing the garages indicate heavy activity has taken place in and around the garages,” 38 North added.
