] according to the U.S. military global network reported the" national interest "website reported on January 7th, a satellite company of Israel claimed that Russia has confirmed the base in Syria of Lattakia province the deployment of the" Islamic Kandel -M short-range ballistic missile. The deployment of the missile system can be equipped with nuclear warheads to Moscow Kremlin to hit targets across the Middle East.
iSi company said in a statement: "B earth remote observing system iSi (EROS B) in high resolution satellite image taken in December 28, 2016 is deployed in Syria's first image evidence of the missile system. Can clearly see the runway in the northeast side of a logistics site has 2 cars' Islamic Kandel 'missile vehicle. The 2 cars are likely to be "Islamic Kandel" (SS-26) missile transport vehicles.

This actually replaced the missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads ORT-23 "Orca" ballistic missile was banned by the INF treaty. According to
reports, pure inertial guidance for model accuracy of the circular error probability of 200 meters, but with the global positioning system and the Russian GLONASS satellite navigation system, the error can be reduced to less than 50 meters. If these systems are of radar and photoelectric sensor, the accuracy of Islamic Kandel "missile 10 meters.
