Russia Strikes ISIS Targets In Syria From Submarine In Mediterranean

Russia has introduced new type of missiles into the fight against ISIS. 3M-54 Kalibr missiles were launched from a submarine in the Mediterranean Sea on an ISIS target in Syria.

Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu  said that 3M-54 Kalibr missiles were launched from the Kilo-class diesel-electric submarine “Rostov-on-Don”

A source within the Russian Ministry of Defense revealed earlier on Tuesday that the Rostov-on-Don, equipped with modern Russian Kalibr cruise missiles, had entered the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea near the coast of Syria.

Russia’s warships based in the Caspian and Mediterranean seas launched similar missiles targeting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) positions in late November. This is the first time that Russia has targeted IS in Syria from a submarine.

“[The missiles] targeted two major terrorist positions in the territory of Raqqa,” he said.

“We can say with absolute confidence that significant damage has been inflicted upon ammunition warehouses and a mine production plant, as well as the oil infrastructure.”
