Russian submarines fire cruise missiles at Islamic State in Syria

The Russian Navy on Thursday fired seven cruise missiles at Islamic state targets in the suburbs of Syria's Deir al-Zor, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

 

It said the missiles were fired from two submarines in the eastern Mediterranean from a distance of 500-670 kilometers (727 miles).

 

"The targets were command posts, communication centers, as well as militants' weapons and ammunition stockpiles in areas of south-east Deir al-Zor under the control of Islamic State," the ministry said.
