Two Russian subs attack Islamic State in Syria with Kalibr cruise missiles

Russian submarines fire seven cruise missiles at Isis militants

Russia's military fired several cruise missiles at Islamic State militants in eastern Syria on Thursday, Kremlin officials said.

Russian Federation has launched seven cruise missiles at ISIS targets around the city of Deir Ezzor in Syria.

The missiles managed to destroy a command center, a communications hub, an ammunition depot and an unspecified number of ISIS fighters.

The Russian government has aided Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in targeting the group, also known by the acronym ISIS, for two years. It has repeatedly fired salvoes of such missiles, from both the sea and mainland Russian Federation.

Philippine government forces have been trying to remove IS-linked militants from the city since May.

The militants control less than half the city and are encircled on three sides with their backs to the Euphrates River.

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.

US -backed militias fighting Islamic State are not planning to enter the city of Deir al-Zor in eastern Syria, a USA military spokesman said on Thursday, reducing the chances of the American allies coming face to face with Syrian government forces. The missiles travelled a distance of 500-670 kilometers, according to the ministry.

Colonel Ryan Dillon, the spokesperson for the US-led coalition, criticized the deal between Syria, Hezbollah, and IS.

Both the countries claimed that they should have been killed on the battlefield not moved to the Iraq border.

The relocation came in exchange for ISIS-held prisoners and the remains of Lebanese soldiers captured in 2014.

The head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said buses and vehicles carrying about 400 militants and civilians crossed into Deir Ezzor province on Wednesday.
