    The Russian Defense Ministry has released a video of cruise missile strikes on ISIL targets in Syria, launched over 1500 km away, from the Caspian Sea. Four missile carrier ships participated in the strikes.

       

    Missile carrier ships deployed in the Caspian Sea launched 18 Kalibr-M cruise missiles, targeting 7 terrorist hubs in Raqqa, Idlib and Aleppo. All targets have been eliminated, according to the Russian MoD. 

    Four cruise missile carriers from the Caspian flotilla surface action group — the 'Dagestan', the 'Uglich', the 'Veliky Ustyug' and the 'Grad Sviyazhsk' — launched all 18 missiles, said the flotilla's deputy commander, Captain 1st Rank Sergey Yekimov.
