Russian Navy prepares to strike jihadists in Syria

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:30 P.M.) – The Russian aircraft carrier, Admiral Kuznetsov, arrived this week to Syrian territorial waters after a long journey that included a trip through the English Channel.

With its warships positioned off the Syrian coast, the Admiral Kuznetsov is preparing to unleash its Kalibr missile system against the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) and the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

According to a military source in the port-city of Tartous, Russian warships have already made their final preparations to launch these Kalibr cruise missiles towards the enemy forces in several provinces, including Aleppo and Al-Raqqa.

The Admiral Kuznetsov is expected to remain in the Mediterranean for at least six months, a military source told Al-Masdar News.
