Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu stated Wednesday that Russia is using warships in the Caspian Sea to target the ISIS terrorists in Syria.
In a later statement by the Russian Defense Ministry released by Interfax news agency said that targets also included Al Nusra positions.
Russia last week began carrying out airstrikes in Syria in what it said was a pre-emptive operation against terrorism in the Middle East.
Shoigu told President Vladimir Putin in televised remarks that Russia on Wednesday morning carried out 26 missile strikes from four warships of its Caspian Sea flotilla. Shoigu insisted the operation destroyed all the targets and did not launch any strikes upon civilian areas.
Putin replied that it was too early to talk about the results of Russia's operations in Syria and ordered Shoigu to continue cooperation with the United States, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Iraq on Syria.
Shoigu added a direct communication line was established between Russian national command center and Turkish army command center to prevent border violation incidents in air.
