An image circulated by the Russian military Tuesday purportedly showing "irrefutable evidence" of USA forces assisting Islamic State terrorists was actually taken from a 2015 video game.
The social media post for both its Russian language channel and the English-language version were also deleted following the revelation that the scene was from a video game.
The discovery was made by Eliot Higgins, founder of the investigative website Bellingcat, who noticed a large red "fire" button in the corner had been cropped out of the picture.
The Russian Defense Ministry made a fool of itself today when it posted on Twitter and Facebook "irrefutable evidence" that the United States 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 United States' refusal to carry out strikes against ISIL terrorist convoys retreating from [Al-Bukamal] is a fact recorded in the transcripts of the talks and, therefore, well known to the American side, just as the active counteraction by US aircraft to the Russian Aerospace Forces, which were ready to destroy ISIL terrorists who were regrouping for new attacks against government troops near [Al-Bukamal]", the ministry added, using an alternative acronym for ISIS.
Coalition spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon called those claims, "about as accurate as their air campaign".
