BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Russian military unleashed a powerful attack on the jihadist stronghold of Jisr Al-Shughour in the Idlib Governorate.

According to preliminary reports, the Russian military launched long-range missiles on the Jisr Al-Shughour District, resulting in a number of powerful explosions.

No further details have been released.

Jisr Al-Shughour is a large city in western Idlib that is under the control of jihadist groups like Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party.

The city itself was captured by Jaysh Al-Fateh in the Summer of 2015.

If they didn’t launched old missiles near to reach retirement or tested something new, it’s not a cost effective way of doing : if I remember well, a Kalibr costs between $2M and $3M for a 450kg warhead… IDK for Russian bombs, but a basic GBU-10 laser guided bomb costs less than $20k… And I tend to find it already too expensive for pest control purposes…

Quite wrong! Your quoting theoretical US cost to produce similar type of missile, cost is a tenth of your speculative quote in US Dollars.
