Russia used Iskander - SS-26 - short range, earth-to-earth, missiles to target at least three locations in Georgia, the country’s Interior Ministry, said on August 14.

The missiles were used to target port of Poti, town of Gori, Shota Utiashvili, the Interior Ministry spokesman said. He also claimed that the area close to the Baku-Supsa oil pipeline was also targeted with the same missile.

“These are all civilian targets and not the military installations,” he said.
