"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.

What's worse is that the Russian state media also broadcasted footage taken from AC-130 Gunship Simulator preview on their news coverage. At this time, TASS's original report with the claims against the United States is still posted, though the fake photos gave been taken down.

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 video game image seems to be taken from a promotional video on the game's website and YouTube channel, closely cropped to omit the game controls and on-screen information. "All content subject to change". It later reposted the same statement with different images.

"The claim itself is actually ridiculous", Kofman said, with a laugh.

Russian Federation alleges the USA is co-operating with so-called Islamic State by providing cover to fleeing IS militants.

Mass stabbing at Mall of America in Minnesota
Their alleged assailant, Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman , is being held on suspicion of first-degree assault. Reports on Twitter said the stabbing happened in the men's department at Macy's on the first level.

The posts included several screen captures allegedly taken by US forces shepherding an ISIS convoy, protecting them from Russian and Syrian forces.

The original is consistent with a June 2016 Iraqi military video, which shows coalition airstrikes and Iraqi military forces attacking an ISIS convoy fleeing Falluja. "The US-led Coalition Air Force entered the 15-km zone around Abu Kamal to interrupt operation of the Russian aircraft".

Earlier Tuesday, the MoD uploaded images on Facebook and Twitter, which it said were evidence that the U.S. were actually covering up Islamic State (IS, ISIS/ISIL) combat units.

The ministry is investigating its civil employee who attached a wrong photo to illustrate the ministry's statement on Abu Kamal.

Responding to Russia's allegations in remarks carried by Reuters, a spokesman for the US-led coalition Col Ryan Dillon said the Russian allegations were "about as accurate as their air campaign".

The pictures turned out to be screenshots from a video game and old videos shot in Iraq.
