Defense Ministry: “Russia’s Navy Frigates, Submarine Fire 6 Cruise Missiles on Daesh Targets in Syria”

(FNA) ~ Two Russian Navy frigates and a submarine fired six Kalibr cruise missiles on Daesh’ targets in Syria, the country’s defense ministry said.

The missiles were launched from Russian Navy frigates, the Admiral Essen and the Admiral Grigorovich, as well as a submarine, the Krasnodar, from the Eastern Mediterranean, the Defense Ministry said in a Friday statement.

Mercenary-terrorists who survived the attack were later killed in airstrikes.

 

The strikes targeted Daesh (ISIS, ISIL, IS) command and control centers, as well as ammunition depots in the Syrian province of Hama.

“Today’s precision strike hit a large ISIL ammunition depot near the town of Aqirbat, which detonated after receiving a direct hit,” the Defense Ministry statement noted.

The remaining targets were destroyed in subsequent airstrikes, the ministry said. Russia warned Turkey and Israel about the attacks via military-to-military hotlines, it added.

Over the past week, ISIL militants made numerous attempts to escape the besieged city of Raqqa and head towards Palmyra using a “southern corridor,” the Russian army said.

“The terrorists are moving forces through rugged terrain to the Hama province during the night and setting up command posts and ammunition depots in large buildings there,” it added.

The movements of ISIL militants in the area are being monitored by Russian surveillance assets operating round the clock, the military said, adding that any potential targets detected will be subject to precision strikes by the Air Force.

In a relevant development in May, the same warships fired four cruise missiles that hit combat vehicles and militants outside the Syrian city of Palmyra.

According to the Defense Ministry, “[the ships] targeted an area east of Palmyra, where the militants’ heavy weaponry and manpower were located. The militants had moved there from Raqqa. All targets were destroyed,” it said.

The strike was launched after a large Islamic State convoy, comprising 39 vehicles and 120 militants, was spotted outside the city of Raqqa, a Defense Ministry source told RIA Novosti at the time.

“The terrorist convoy of 39 pickup trucks was detected and destroyed by the Air Force on its way to Palmyra,” the source said, adding that “the vehicles had been equipped with large-caliber machine guns”.

“Taking advantage of the dark time and a difficult ground relief, the terrorists deploy gunmen via various routes to the Hama province, where later they equip command posts and also depots of armaments and ammunition in large buildings,” the ministry added.

The ministry also noted that the command of Russia’s force grouping in Syria has launched a round-the-clock monitoring with the use of all kinds of intelligence on the routes of exit and dispersal areas of ISIS terrorists and that the detected terrorist targets are destroyed by high-precision weapons systems and aircraft of Russia’s Aerospace Forces.
