Russian sub fires cruise missiles at militants in Syria

Russian sub fires cruise missiles at militants in Syria”

The source added that all targets had been destroyed.

The defence ministry said the missile strikes from the Veliky Novgorod submarine targeted militants, ammunition depots and fortifications in Idlib province, which is dominated by the al Qaida-linked Levant Liberation Committee. "The distance of the strike was almost 300 kilometers". "According to the objective monitoring data, all the targets have been hit", the Defense Ministry added.

On Friday, it said in a statement it had fired Kalibr cruise missiles at the same jihadis from a distance of 300 kilometres (186.41 miles) striking command centres, armoured vehicles and the bases of jihadis who had taken part in the original attack.

On September 20, the Russian General Staff said the police unit was encircled and repelled the terrorists' attacks for several hours until Russian Spetsnaz and Syrian Special Ops units, backed by Su-25 strike fighters, came to the rescue breaking the enemy siege.

Turkey, Russia's partner in the de-escalation plan and a nation with influence on some of the militants in Idlib governorate, said it will deploy troops there, Reuters reported on Thursday.

The attack from a submerged position came in the wake of an al-Nusra Front terrorist offensive in the Idlib Province where a Russian military police unit was surrounded.

Syrian government forces, Russian special forces and USA -backed militants are all battling IS around the oil-rich Deir el-Zour province.In addition to a longstanding phone line that US and Russian air forces use to "de-conflict" their operations over Syria, a new link has been in operation between the top USA and Russian ground commanders in the region for "over a month now", coalition spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon told reporters. Supported by the Russian warplanes, the group broke the encirclement.

On the ground in Syria, American and Russian special operations teams still do not communicate with each other directly, even though they are working in close proximity with Syrian forces to close in on remaining Islamic State strongholds.
