Russian Missiles Rock ISIS in Syria

Russian Frigate Admiral Essen and Submarine Krasnodar launched 4 strikes including several cruise missiles from the East Mediterranean Sea aimed at ISIS artillery strongholds.  The Kremlin said Wednesday, “the strikes were ordered by Russian President  Vladimir Putin. The purpose of the mission was to eliminate strategic artillery stockpiles in the ISIS stronghold in Raqqa, Syria.  All targeted stockpiles were destroyed.  The Kremlin said,”U.S., Turkey, and Israel were briefed in advance of the strikes to eliminate any misinterpretations that Russian was initiating an act of war.

It appears President Donald Trump’s strong foreign policy stance carries more weight throughout the world than was previously disposed.  This on the eve of the terrorist bombing in Afghanistan killing 90 civilians on Tuesday.   Expect President Trump to increase airstrikes in the next few weeks in Afghan to target Al Quaeda and ISIS.
