Russian Kalibr Missile-Armed Black Sea Ships to Stay in Syria Into September

Russia's Caspian Fleet launches a massive attack involving 18 Kalibr-NK cruise missiles on 7 terrorist positions in the Syrian provinces of al-Raqqah, Idlib and Aleppo
Two Russian Black Sea warships equipped with Kalibr cruise missiles will remain in eastern Mediterranean at least until next month, a military and diplomatic source told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.
   The Serpukhov and Zeleny Dol small missile ships carried out three Kalibr launches against the Jabhat Fatah Al-Sham (al-Nusra Front) targets in Syria last Friday.
    “Their return to the base was planned this month, but at the moment the situation in Syria requires that they remain in the eastern Mediterranean at least until September,” the source said.
    Russia began an anti-terrorist operation in Syria in September 2015 at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
