Two Russian submarines fired seven Kalibr sea-based cruise missiles at crucial facilities of the Islamic State in Syria from underwater positions in the eastern Mediterranean, the Russian Defence Ministry said on Thursday.
The diesel-electric attack submarines Veliky Novgorod and Kolpino struck control points, communication centres, and weapons and ammunition depots in the IS-controlled areas southeast of the city of Deir ez-Zor located in northeastern Syria from a distance of 670 km, the ministry said in a statement, Xinhua reported.
All targeted objects were hit, the ministry said.
Syrian government troops supported by Russian air and naval strikes are successfully advancing in various parts of the war-torn country, having liberated most of it from the IS and other terrorist groups.
