Russian Military Targets Syrian Militants With Kalibr Cruise Missiles: Interfax

Russia’s military fired cruise missiles from its submarine in the Mediterranean Sea at militant positions in northwestern Syria Friday.

The Kalibr missiles fired from the Veliky Novgorod submarine destroyed command centers and a training base of the militants in Syria’s Idlib province, which is dominated by the al-Qaida-linked Levant Liberation Committee, Interfax reports.

Earlier this week, the militants attacked members of the Russian military police in Hama province killing three Russians. The al-Qaida-linked militants surrounded 29 Russian military officers deployed outside of Idlib and kept attacking them for several hours.

According to the Russian defense ministry, the Russian troops repelled the attack with the help of local tribes.
