Syrian Navy Conducts Coastal Live Fire Exercise
The Syrian Naval Forces staged live fire exercises on Saturday, launching missiles from both sea and land to "simulate the scenario of repelling a sudden attack from the sea," the state news agency said on Sunday.

"The navy carried out the training successfully, repelling the hypothetical attack and hitting the given targets with high precision," SANA reported.
