Rus­sian navy fires cruise mis­siles into east­ern Syria

The Washington Times Daily - - WORLD -

ABOARD THE AD­MI­RAL ESSEN | Rus­sia fired a salvo of cruise mis­siles from the Mediter­ranean on Thurs­day and said they struck Is­lamic State tar­gets in east­ern Syria.

Ac­tivists there said at least 20 civil­ians were killed in what they de­scribed a “fa­nat­i­cal” bom­bard­ment — blam­ing some of it on Rus­sia and some on the United States.

The seven Kal­ibr cruise mis­siles, launched from the sub­marines Ve­liky Nov­gorod and Kolpino, hit IS in­stal­la­tions in Deir el-Zour prov­ince, the Rus­sian De­fense Min­istry said.
