Russian Navy has hit various Daesh targets, using Kalibr cruise missiles at militant hideouts on east of Palmyra that had housed heavy equipment and militant manpower.
The militant hideouts had housed heavy equipment transferred from Raqqa, the Daesh stronghold in northern Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said Wednesday.
"The Russian Navy's Admiral Essen frigate and Krasnodar submarine performed a launch of four Kalibr cruise missiles from the eastern Mediterranean against the targets of the IS [Daesh] terrorist groups in the area of Palmyra," the ministry said.
The defence ministry also said that all targets have been struck. The US, Turkish and Israeli militaries have been warned in advance through the operational channels of interaction, the ministry said Wednesday.
