"The Russian Navy's Admiral Essen frigate and Krasnodar submarine performed a launch of four Kalibr cruise missiles from the eastern Mediterranean against the targets of the IS [Daesh] terrorist groups in the area of Palmyra," the ministry said. "All targets have been struck."
The Russian Defense Ministry released a video footage demonstrating how the strikes against the Daesh terror group were carried out.
The video posted on the Russian social network VK (VKontakte) shows the use of missiles by a battleship as well as missile launches from a submarine. The footage also demonstrates the destruction of several targets by the Russian missiles.
The US, Turkish and Israeli militaries have been warned in advance, the ministry said Wednesday.
