Why not the Med ?
Launchers were in Caspian Sea, due to the weapon range they could reach Syria from there.
Launches were conducted from a new direction because militants would sometimes, especially the leadership, disperse and/or intermix with civilians when receiving reports or take offs from Latakia. Who provides those reports is another matter, the one we are looking into.
And while we couldnt do much about HUMINT, well not yet anyway, we could do plenty about classical airborne ISR assets, that is what the jammers are there for.
