  • Russia uses video game footage to accuse U.S. of aiding ISIS

The Russian Defense Ministry has said it has obtained evidence the US-led coalition provides support for the terrorist group Islamic State (outlawed in Russia).

The Russian Defense Ministry on Tuesday accused the US -led coalition of interfering with the Russian air force to protect retreating Islamic State (IS) militants.

Researchers at Conflict Intelligence Team, a nonprofit group that investigates Russian military activities, subsequently reported that three other images shared by Russia as "irrefutable evidence" of US forces assisting the Islamic State were actually taken from video released by the Iraqi Ministry of Defense in 2016.

"However, the Americans categorically refused to conduct airstrikes against the IS terrorists, saying that, according to their data, the fighters were "surrendering" and were protected by the Geneva convention on treatment of war prisoners", the Russian officials said. The Russian Ministry of Defence has used a videogame screenshot to accuse the USA of cooperating with ISIS.

The ministry claimed in a Facebook post and tweet on Tuesday that the picture showed an "Isis automobile convoy" fleeing Abu Kamal, Syria, under United States protection on November 9.

In violation of a previously reached agreement, attack aircraft of the coalition entered the airspace over Abu Kamal to hamper the work of the Russian air force, the ministry said in a statement.

The Syrian government troops' offensive against the city of Abu Kamal has disrupted the United States plans to create pro-American authorities to govern the territories on the eastern bank of the Euphrates, according to the Russian Defense Ministry. The plans were dispelled by the rapid advance of the Syrian army, Moscow said. The tweet says that "the ministry of defence shows irrefutable evidence that U.S. are actually covering ISIS combat units to recover their combat capabilities, redeploy, and use them to promote American Interests in the Middle East". The flags used by Syrian Democratic Forces units found in Abu Kamal confirm that, the Russian Defense Ministry noted.
