Russia Posts Video Game Footage as 'Evidence' of US/ISIS Coalition
"Regarding Abu Kamal, this is not the only case when the US spares terrorists", Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov was quoted as saying by Russia's official TASS news agency on Tuesday.
It repeated the claim it was "irrefutable evidence that United States are actually covering Isis [IS] combat units to recover their combat capabilities, redeploy, and use them to promote the American interests in the Middle East". Instead, it said, American forces interfered with Russian air operations, allowing ISIS to recover and redeploy.
The ministry's official account said the black-and-white images were taken on November 9 near the Syria-Iraq border and provided "irrefutable proof that the U.S. is providing cover to IS combat units".
Soon after people noted the dubious origin of the photographs, the defence ministry deleted its tweets, and removed the photographs from the corresponding Facebook posts.
Earlier on Tuesday, the ministry posted a statement on its Facebook page saying the US air force had tried to hinder Russian strikes on Islamic State militants, accompanied by satellite photographs it said showed a vehicle convoy of Islamic State militants leaving the Syrian town of Albu Kamal on November 9 2017. According to PCGamesN, the screenshot is from a gameplay footage video for a game called AC-130 Gunship Simulator which was uploaded to YouTube by its developer.
It said the US-led coalition refused requests to cooperate and "eliminate fleeing Isis convoys".
