"The Russian MoD`s multilayered surveillance system deployed in Syria detected the critical objects of IS [forbidden in Russia] in Deir ez-Zor province, namely, command posts, large weapon and munition depots and hangars with armored vehicles of the terrorists near the city of Meyadin within the last week. To destroy these targets, the 'Velikiy Novgorod' and 'Kolpino' submarines of the Black Sea Fleet launched the Kalibr SLCMs in two salvoes," the department said in a statement.

The strikes against the international terrorists near the city of Meyadin have been conducted to support the successful offensive operation of the Syrian armed forces aimed at the elimination of the IS` (forbidden in Russia) foothold in Deir-ez-Zor province.

The submarines have sub-launched 10 3M-14 cruise missiles. All the assigned targets have been destroyed, according to the objective control means. The IS (forbidden in Russia) group near the city of Meyadin has suffered heavy losses in manpower and hardware.

Russia`s air group and naval task force in the Mediterranean Sea are continuing to support the offensive operation of the Syrian army to eliminate the IS` (forbidden in Russia) foothold in Euphrates River valley.

During the counter-terrorism operation in Syria, Russia`s Navy has launched 88 3M-14 Kalibr missiles since October 2015. Most of the SLCMs (44 missiles) were used by the Caspian Flotilla`s ships in October-November 2015. In December 2015, the Project 636.3 'Rostov-na-Donu' submarine sub-launched four more 3M-14 missiles from the Eastern Mediterranean. In August 2016, two Project 21631 corvettes, 'Serpukhov' and 'Zeleny Dol', conducted launches of three missiles from the Mediterranean Sea. In November 2016, the 'Admiral Grigorovich' Project 11356 frigate launched at least three missiles from the Mediterranean Sea. On May 30, 2017, the 'Admiral Essen' frigate and the 'Krasnodar' submarine conducted launches of four more 3M-14 SLCMs against the IS (forbidden in Russia) targets near Palmyra. On June 23, the 'Admiral Grigorovich' and 'Admiral Essen' frigates and the 'Krasnodar' submarine launched six SLCMs. In September, the 'Admiral Essen' frigate launched three missiles against the positions of IS (forbidden in Russia) near Deir-ez-Zor. On September 14, the 'Velikiy Novgorod' and 'Kolpino' submarines sub-launched seven SLCMs. On September 22, 'Velikiy Novgorod' launched four missiles.

Russia has used over 200 air- and sea-launched cruise missiles since the beginning of the counter-terrorism operation in Syria.
