Northern Iran was under the flight path of the missiles (bearing in mind they would be avoiding Turkish airspace), is it really so hard to believe that 4 of them suffered a malfunction?
Limited explosion size could be explained by warheads not being armed until close to target (not unlikely considering they're flying over "friendly" territory en-route to target?
Just reading the news article and seeing the supposed flight path of the misiles, I got to really hand it down to Ruskies to have nailed all thier targets with that kind of precision.
The margin of error there is zero, given no civilian causualities for MSM to spin some propaganda off of this.

All the MSM outlets are running this story, yet each of them are citing some "unnamed US official." Give us a damn name, why is it so hard? Coming as it is from some anonymous source looks like little more than propaganda.
A senior Russian military official has vehemently rejected US allegations that Russian cruise missiles launched from the Caspian Sea and aimed at Daesh positions in Syria have crashed in Iran.
"Any professional knows that during these operations we always fix the target before and after impact. All our cruise missiles hit their target," Russia's Defense Ministry spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov, said in a statement on Thursday.
The remarks came in response to earlier claims by two unnamed US officials that a number of Russian Syria-bound projectiles landed in Iran on Wednesday. One official told CNN news network on Thursday that there may be casualties, while another said it is not yet known.
"Unlike CNN, we don't report quoting anonymous sources, but we show launches of our missiles and the targets they hit in real-time mode," Konashenkov said.
Unlike CNN, we don't report quoting anonymous sources,

But here we are just eating it up like a bunch of retards.
Speak for yourself. You're the one who automatically believes whatever Russia says. I'm on the fence until there is some better reporting, with details, from reliable sources.
