The strike, launched from the Mediterranean by Russia’s Veliky Novgorod submarine, was part of a counter-offensive against a jihadi attack on government-held parts of northwest Syria near Hama on Tuesday. The missiles hit command centers, armored vehicles and the bases of jihadis who had taken part in the original attack.
