Russian warships from the Caspian flotilla have launched 18 cruise missiles on terrorist targets in Syria, Russia's Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Thursday.

Russian warships from the Caspian flotilla have launched 18 cruise missiles on terrorist targets in Syria, Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Thursday.

 “On November 20, ships from the Caspian flotilla have launched 18 cruise missiles on seven targets in the provinces of Raqqa, Idlib and Aleppo. All targets were destroyed,” Shoigu said in a report to president Vladimir Putin.

Russia’s military action in Syria is carried out well, but is not enough to free the Arab Republic of terrorism and protect Russia from potential attacks, President Vladimir Putin said during a video conference with military commanders, thanking them for their work.

“The tasks are being carried out, and they are carried out well,” Putin said Thursday. “But this is so far not enough to clear Syria of fighters, terrorists, and shield Russia from possible terrorist attacks,” the president added.

“There is a lot of work ahead of us and I hope the next stages will be carried out just as professionally, and bring the expected results.”
