Russian Federation releases video game screenshot as 'proof' United States is working with IS

"The US are actually covering the [fleeing] ISIS combat units to recover their combat capabilities, redeploy, and use them to promote the American interests in the Middle East", the Ministry added.

"This is the irrefutable evidence that there is no struggle against terrorism as the whole global community believes", the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement posted on Facebook along with photos.

"These facts are conclusive evidence that the United States, while imitating an uncompromising fight against worldwide terrorism for the global community, in fact provides cover for Islamic State units", the defense ministry said.

The game in question is none other than AC-130 Gunship Simulator for Android and iOS.

"However, the US command's refusal to carry out strikes on the convoys of ISIL terrorists retreating from Albu Kamal on November 9 is an objective fact reflected in the transcripts of the talks and therefore, fully known to the USA side", Interfax news agency quoted the ministry as saying on Tuesday.

Another image purporting to show the same convoy in Syria was actually taken from a 2016 video published by Iraq's defence ministry, which said it was an Islamic State convoy fleeing Fallujah, Iraq, Conflict Intelligence Team investigators found.

Shortly after the Russian defense ministry posted the photos, social media users quickly identified the fakes.

The original game footage, which was cropped in the ministry's post, included a red "FIRE" button in the bottom-right corner as well as a disclaimer in the top-right corner that read: "Development footage".

It said the US-led coalition refused requests to cooperate and "eliminate fleeing Isis convoys".

A later press release said it had launched a probe into the actions of a civilian employee of one of its subdivisions who "mistakenly attached photos" to the first version of its statement.

Coalition spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon called those claims, "about as accurate as their air campaign". "So, again that is pretty consistent with what we have seen come out of Russian MoD, as being baseless, inaccurate and you know, completely false", he told a briefing with Pentagon reporters on Tuesday.

"We find this behavior particularly disappointing and inconsistent with the spirit of the November 11 joint statement by the President of the United States and the President of the Russian Federation", said Maj.
