North Korea's government is preparing to conduct another ballistic missile launch within the next three days, two U.S. officials told Fox News on Tuesday.

The launch planned within 24 to 72 hours is aimed at showcasing North Korea's intermediate-range ballistic missile technologies that the country has been working to perfect since the start of its nuclear program.

These missiles are typically easy to conceal and can be launched from road-mobile vehicles, officials told Fox.
 
The launch of the intermediate-range Musudan missile would be North Korea's ninth test launch this year. 

North Korea has long pushed to build intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of striking the U.S., despite international sanctions and efforts to derail the country's nuclear program.
