Earlier today, CNN, citing sources, reported that missiles aimed for Syria landed in Iran; at least four of the missiles crashed over Iran.
Yet the Russian defense ministry denies that — rather strongly.
Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov told Sputnik News: “No matter how unpleasant and unexpected for our colleagues in the Pentagon and Langley was yesterday’s high-precision strike on Islamic State infrastructure in Syria, the fact remains that all missiles launched from our ships have found their targets.”
He went on to criticize CNN, “In contrast to CNN we do not talk with reference to anonymous sources,” Konashenkov said. “We show the launch of our rockets and the targets they struck.”
And video offered up by the defense ministry certainly appears to verify its claims.
