BREAKING: US 'to launch PREEMPTIVE STRIKE if North Korea conducts NUCLEAR weapons test'

In recent years, barbaric dictator Kim Jong-un has launched nuclear tests to coincide with ‘the Day of the Sun’, an annual public holiday in North Korea to commemorate the birth of the country’s founder, Kim Il-sung.

Pyongyang has already warned of an upcoming “big and important event” and with the Day of the Sun set to be celebrated on Saturday April 15 as the world is bracing itself for another test launch.

Satellite images have revealed “unusually high levels of activity” at Kim Jong-un’s Punggye-ri nuclear test site.

Experts say the images could mean a nuclear test is “imminent” as US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson calls for North Korea to destroy its nuclear arsenal.

The news comes just hours after President Trump launched the US’s biggest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS stronghold in Afghanistan.

The GBU-43 bomb weighs 21,600 pounds, is 30 feet long and contains 11 tons of explosives.

Former US intelligence officer Andrew Peek suggested the use of the bomb was a “creative way to threaten North Korea”, adding that it “was not meant for Afghanistan”.
