Two Russian submarines fired seven Kalibr sea-based cruise missiles at crucial facilities of the Islamic State in Syria from underwater positions in the eastern Mediterranean, the Russian Defence Ministry said on Thursday. The Syrian Government has praised several times the contribution in the fight against terrorism by countries such as Russian Federation and Iran, along with the forces of the Islamic Resistance Movement of Lebanon (Hezbollah).

The projectiles destroyed control centers, communication hubs and arms dumps being used by the terrorists, the regime said.

Meanwhile, U.S. -backed Syrian forces are advancing in the surrounding province from the east and north.

US -backed militias fighting Islamic State are not planning to enter the city of Deir al-Zor in eastern Syria, a USA military spokesman said on Thursday, reducing the chances of the American allies coming face to face with Syrian government forces.

Syrian government forces recently broke the extremist group's three-year siege on Deir al-Zor as troops advanced on the western side of the city.

At the end of August, the deal reached saw hundreds of militants and their families being allowed to relocate to Boukamal, an ISIS-held Syrian town near the Iraqi border. One surviving Hezbollah fighter was returned to Lebanon Thursday.

The head of Britain's Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said buses and vehicles carrying about 400 militants and civilians crossed into Deir el-Zour province Wednesday. Last week, the U.S-led coalition said it ended surveillance of the convoy after a Russian request.
