Syria: Russian Sub Fires Cruise Missiles at Terrorists
Local Editor

A Russian submarine in the Mediterranean fired cruise missiles at Al-Qaeda-linked terrorists' positions in northwestern Syria Friday, a day after extremists wounded three Russian troops in the area, the Defense Ministry said.

The ministry in Moscow said the missile strikes from the Veliky Novgorod submarine earlier in the day targeted terrorists, ammunition depots and fortifications in Idlib province, which is dominated by Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham.

Thursday, three Russian troops were wounded after terrorists encircled 29 Russian military officers deployed outside of Idlib for several hours.

The Russian troops repelled the attack with the help of local tribes, the Russian ministry added.

Over the past weeks, Russia fired cruise missiles from the Mediterranean toward positions of Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group] in Deir al-Zor but attacks on Idlib have been rare.

Moscow said the Kalibr missiles destroyed command centers and a training base of the terrorists who had attacked members of the Russian military police in Hama earlier this week.

The Russian Ministry said the missiles were fired at targets 300 kilometers away.

"Surprise missile strikes in Idlib province destroyed important command posts, training bases and armored vehicles of the terrorists who took part in an attempt to capture 29 Russian military policemen in southern Hama province," the ministry statement said, citing intelligence.
