Sputnik: Russian Warships in Caspian Sea Launch Attack on ISIL in Syria
Russian warships have launched a total of 26 cruise missiles at Islamic State facilities, destroying all targets.
Russian warships have attacked Islamic State targets in Syria, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Wednesday during a meeting with President Putin.
“Besides using aviation to destroy militants, this morning ships from the Caspian Flotilla were brought in, four destroyers launched 26 Kalibr sea-based cruise missiles at 11 targets,” Shoigu told Putin in a meeting televised by Rossiya-1.
WNU Editor: When I first heard of this report early this morning I was sceptical .... firing cruise missiles from the Caspian Sea?!?!?!? But apparently that is exactly what they did.
