This is how the Russians are taking on ISIS in Syria

This is how the Russians are taking on ISIS in Syria”

The Admiral Essen and Admiral Grigorovich frigates, along with the Krasnodar submarine, fired the cruise missiles from the Mediterranean Sea, the Defense Ministry said in a statement posted to state news agency RIA.

The ministry said in a statement that strikes targeted and destroyed Islamic State command and control centres and ammunition depots in Syria's Hama province.

Back in August of past year, the Russian Black Sea Fleet also fired Kalibr cruise missiles over unpopulated areas to destroy a command post and munitions production site of another terrorist group operating in Syria, the Al-Nusra Front, the Russian military said.

This is all adding to a growing sense of concern that the war against ISIS in southern Syria might inevitably escalate to see the U.S. fighting the Syrian regime as well as Iranian-backed forces.

Moscow had fired missiles in the past from the Mediterranean at militants' positions in Syria. He says if others, including Iran, Syria and Russian Federation, want to fight them as well, then "we absolutely have no problem with that".

Officials are privately anxious that Iran's ongoing efforts to build an area of control stretching from Tehran to Beirut will eventually expand the United States war by posing a security threat to U.S. troops operating in southern Syria near the border with Iraq and Jordan. We as a coalition are not in the land-grab business. Hundreds of ISIS terrorists, including top commanders were killed in the attack.

On May 18, the United States attacked a convoy of Iranian-backed militiamen in southern Syria, reportedly killing eight fighters.

Earlier, Erdogan also said Turkey would never allow the creation of a separate Kurdish entity in northern Syria.

The commander said the attacks had inflicted "tremendous damage" on the terrorists, adding Iran had got new information in this regard which would be released soon, Press TV reported.

When the USA shot down a Syrian jet last week, Russian Federation warned it would target all foreign aircraft west of the Euphrates River. Will not escalation of the conflict follow?

Highlighting the difference between Iran's genuine actions and the USA false military coalition, Kalajie said the so-called US-led coalition has never launched a direct attack against Daesh and has only helped the survival of the terrorist group.

The Syrian government will not allow its enemies to benefit from the creation of de-escalation zones in western Syria, the Syrian deputy foreign minister has said, ahead of worldwide talks on the zones scheduled for early July in Kazakhstan.

The Russians also said they suspended their hotline that the American and Russian militaries used to prevent collisions of their aircraft in Syrian airspace. Ankara is angered by a US decision to launch the Raqqa offensive in partnership with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces.
