On Wednesday, Russia fired 26 cruise missiles at what it said were ISIS targets in Syria, assisting a ground offensive launched by the Syrian military in central western Syria.

U.S. officials said that it was unclear if the Russian missiles caused any damage or casualties as they crashed in Iranian territory. [ Source ]
