Russian Sub Hits ISIS While Submerged in the Mediterranean Sea

Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said the Russian Navy fired Kalibr cruise missiles from the submerged Rostov-on-Don submarine on December 8.

Although Russian Navy has been actively firing cruise missiles from the navy’s surface warships since September 2015, this marks the first successful firing of these missiles from a submerged position.

“The objectives were two major points of terrorists in Syrian Raqqa province … We are confident to say that the strikes brought quite significant damage to an ammunition warehouse and a mine plant, as well as to the oil infrastructure“, Tass news agency quoted the Russian Defence Minister saying.
