Russian warships fire cruise missiles targeting Isis in Syria

The Russian military says its warships in the Mediterranean Sea have fired four cruise missiles at Isis positions in Syria. 

The Russian Defence Ministry says in a statement that the Admiral Essen frigate and the Krasnodar submarine launched the missiles at Isis targets in the area of the ancient city of Palmyra. 

It says the missiles successfully hit Isis heavy weapons and fighters whom the group had deployed and moved to Palmyra from its stronghold of Raqqa, the de facto capital of Isis and it's self-proclaimed caliphate. 

The ministry says it had notified the US, Turkish and Israeli militaries beforehand of the coming strike. It added the Russian strike was promptly executed following the order, a testimony to the navy's high readiness and capabilities.
