Russia has introduced its newest “Iskander” rocket system into the Syrian battlefield. Based on reports, Russia fired “Iskander” rocket on Turkey and smashed their border.
This was reported by military-informant.com.
In the night of June 9th, in the area of the Bab al-Hawa crossing on the Syrian border with Turkey, a powerful explosion took place from a missile attack. The border crossing is 50 km west of Aleppo.
Representatives of the terrorist group ISIS announced that the Russian Hmeymim airbase launched a tactical missile from the “Iskander” system.
The modern “Iskander” missile system is actually in service with the Russian military contingent in Syria, arriving at the Hmeymim airbase in March 2016.
Sources in the Ministry of Defense of Syria, in turn, confirmed the missile strike on militant positions near the Bab al-Hawa border crossing, but according to their message, the Soviet Tochka missile system was used to destroy the convoy of trucks that was carrying weapons and ammunition from the territory of Turkey.
