All Russian cruise missiles, launched against terrorist positions in Syria, found their targets, a Defense Ministry spokesman said in Moscow on Thursday, commenting on a CNN report about several missiles allegedly landing on Iranian territory.

"No matter how unpleasant and unexpected it is for our colleagues in the Pentagon and Langley, our strikes yesterday with precision-guided weapons at ISIL infrastructure in Syria hit their targets," Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.

Tehran Has No Info on Cruise Missiles Which Allegedly Landed in Iran
"Unlike CNN, we don't report quoting anonymous sources, but we show launches of our missiles and the targets they hit in real-time mode," Konashenkov noted, adding that Russian drones are operating in Syria around the clock monitoring operations.

Iranian state TV, IRINN, reported later Thursday that an unnamed Iranian official also denied the CNN report.

Iran's semi-official FARS news agency additionally said that the Iranian Defense Ministry had rejected reports alleging that four of the 26 cruise missiles fired from Russia's Caspian fleet at ISIL targets in Syria struck targets in Iran. FARS added that the Iranian Defense Ministry said the reports are part of the West's "psychological warfare."

On September 30, Russia, acting on a request from Syrian President Bashar Assad, started launching surgical airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Syria by Sukhoi Su-25 ground attack planes, Su-24 and Su-34 bombers.
