BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 A.M.) – The Russian Navy launched several Kalibr cruise missiles towards the Islamic State’s (ISIL) positions in eastern Syria on Sunday, Interfax News Agency reported last night.

According to a statement from the Russian Navy, a submarine off the cast of Syria launched a number of cruise missiles at the Islamic State’s positions in eastern Syria.

These Russian cruise missiles reportedly struck the Islamic State’s positions in the eastern countryside of Palmyra, where the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is currently attempting to advance against the terrorist group.

Russia has carried out several cruise missile strikes against the Islamic State in the past; however, they have been less prevalent recently due to the Syrian Arab Army’s success on the ground.

“several cruise missile strikes against the Islamic State in the past; however, they have been less prevalent recently due to the Syrian Arab Army’s success on the ground. ”
=> These are more live drills/tests : this one is more to verify it’s efficient in undersea launching but, technically, there is no real need for cruise/ballistic missiles.
