Four cruise missiles launched from a Russian warship aimed at targets in Syria missed their target and crashed in Iran Thursday, a senior defense official told Fox News.
The “Kalibr” cruise missiles were fired for the first time in combat from warships in the Caspian Sea, the official said.
There was no immediate word of any damage or casualties in Iran.
Russia began launching missiles into Syria from warships on Wednesday, The Associated Press reported.
Russian officials said 26 cruise missiles launched from warships have already hit the provinces of Raqqa and Aleppo in the north and Idlib province in the northwest. The Islamic State group has strongholds in Raqqa and Aleppo, while Syria’s Al Qaeda affiliate, the Nusra Front, has a strong presence in Idlib.
Russia says its military intervention is aimed at helping the Syrian government defeat ISIS, but local activists and U.S. officials say the strikes have also targeted Western-backed rebels.
