Russian military bombards ISIS targets in Syria

Russian military bombards ISIS targets in Syria

Two Russian submarines fired seven Kalibr sea-based cruise missiles at crucial facilities of the Islamic State in Syria from underwater positions in the eastern Mediterranean, the Russian Defence Ministry said on Thursday.

The ministry said the targets were destroyed. This isn't the first time Russian Federation is stepping up to the plate, as they have been backing Syrian President since 2015.

Advanced stealth technology is coupled with 18 torpedoes and eight cruise missiles, which Russian Federation claims will allow the craft to strike land, sea and air targets.

As IS continues to lose ground in Syria and Iraq, the extremists recently released a video encouraging fighters to join a campaign in the Philippines near the city of Marawi.

Syrian government forces broke a three-year Islamic State siege on parts of the provincial capital, also known as Deir el-Zour, last week, and are now battling the extremists inside the city.

In the aftermath of the agreement, the US-led coalition began conducting air strikes to block the convoy of fighters from reaching their destination.

Bassem Aziz, a spokesman for the US-backed and Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, said they have taken control of an industrial area on the eastern bank of the river, a few miles from the government troops.

The convoy had been stuck in the desert following airstrikes by the U.S-led coalition to prevent its advance.

According to Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights head, Rami Abdurrahman, buses and vehicles carrying about 400 militants and civilians crossed into Deir el-Zour province on Wednesday, but no details were available about where the buses went.
