The report states that on April 28, 2017 Kim Jong Un's regime launched a single Hwasong-12/KN17 intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM).
Satellite images show damage caused by a failed test launch that struck Tokchon, a city of 200,000 in the interior of Kim Jong-un's secretive state, according to a USA government official.
The Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile was launched eastward from Pyongsong in North Korea's South Pyongan Province.
The blast from missile had caused a significant damage to a complex of industrial or agricultural buildings, The Diplomat magazine reported, citing a USA intelligence source alongside satellite imagery.
The unnamed source showed The Diplomat images from Google Earth from today compared to ones taken in 2016 to show the damage.
The missile's failure was widely reported at the time but it was not previously known that the Hwasong-12 crashed in a populated area.
The missile crashed within minutes after taking off, in the city of Tokchon in North Korea, damaging industrial and agricultural buildings near the vicinity of the crash site.
"However, as the Google Earth imagery of the incident demonstrates, the Tokchon facility is located adjacent to what appear to be residential and commercial buildings". Fearing the chances of such a mishap, Kim had chosen the seaside town of Sinpo as the test site for the first two failed Hwasong-12 launches in April. "A slight difference in trajectory may could have resulted in an even more catastrophic accident over a populated region".
