A Russian warship was steaming toward the area in the Mediterranean where U.S. Navy destroyers launched missile strikes into Syria, Fox News is reporting.

The Russian frigate, Admiral Grigorovich RFS-494, passed through the Bosphorus Strait "a few hours ago" from the Black Sea, the news network said, attributing the information to an unnamed U.S. defense official.

The Russian ship is armed with cruise missiles and is headed the direction of the U.S. warships, according to Fox News.

The news network also reported that one of the American destroyers that launched the missiles into Syria was heading to an undisclosed location to rearm.

The latest moves came after the U.S. attacked a Syrian airbase in retaliation for chemical weapons attack against civilians, including small children.

Meanwhile, the Russian news agency TASS claimed the frigate is on a "routine voyage" and was planning to stop at the Syrian port of Tartus.
