This was the third attempt by North Korean leaders to launch a military spy satellite into orbit. The North Korean military previously attempted spy satellite launches in May and August – both ended in failure due to technical issues.
State media have also claimed similar operations are planned to continue into the future to fortify North Korea’s war capabilities.
