Russia's military admitted Tuesday that footage it initially claimed showed cooperation between the US and the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) in Syria actually originated from a computer game, but defended its findings with alternative evidence. The images were from the game AC-130 Gunship Simulator, available for iOS and Android. It turns out that the images that the account used actually came from a game called AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron, a connection that was made over and over as more people recognized the similarities with a YouTube clip showcasing the game.
The Russian Defense Ministry made a fool of itself today when it posted on Twitter and Facebook "irrefutable evidence" that the U.S. aided ISIS, which turned out to be screengrabs from a well-known video game and a video published online by the Iraqi military in 2016.
The ministry said Russian air power had supported Syrian troops in freeing the town of Abu Kamal from Isis, and that "facts of direct cooperation and support provided by the US-led coalition to the ISIS terrorists" came to light during the operation. Here are the best war games on PC. To make things worse for Russia's Ministry of Defense, they didn't completely crop out the "development footage" disclaimer. In the top-right corner, you can see the beginnings of the statement from the video that claims the footage shown was work-in-progress gameplay and that all of the content shown is subject to change. The ministry later deleted the images. It later reposted the same statement with different images.
Russian Federation alleges the U.S. is co-operating with so-called Islamic State by providing cover to fleeing IS militants.
Russia's defence ministry said not only did the Americans refuse to carry out a joint operation to strike Isis fighters leaving Abu Kamal but also allowed them to regroup on coalition-controlled territory.
"The defense ministry is looking into a civilian employee of one of the departments who attached photos to the defense ministry's statement by mistake", a new statement was quoted by Russian agencies as saying.
The ministry posted a number of aerial images that it claimed were of ISIS convoys, It said the United States intervened to "use (ISIS) to promote American interests in Middle East".
