Russian Federation says U.S. providing cover for Islamic State in Syria

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

Russian servicemen salute as air force pilots arrive to board a Russian Sukhoi Su-30SM fighter jet before departure on a mission at the Russian Hmeimin military base in Latakia province, in the northwest of Syria, on December 16, 2015.

Earlier on Tuesday, the ministry posted a statement on its Facebook page saying the USA air force had tried to hinder Russian strikes on Islamic State militants, accompanied by satellite photographs it said showed a vehicle convoy of Islamic State militants leaving the Syrian town of Albu Kamal on November 9 2017.

He added that Russian forces suffered another blow when the Syrian regime claimed that its forces had liberated Al Bukamal when in reality government troops have not yet regained control of the city.

The evidence that Russia came forward with on Twitter was said to be "irrefutable proof" of collusion, but those who saw the tweets from the Russian Ministry of Defense Twitter account swiftly pointed out that the proof wasn't as irrefutable as it claimed.

"Such actions by the coalition show that the rapid advance of the Syrian troops in Abu Kamal have disrupted USA plans to create pro-American authorities beyond the control of the Syrian government, and to manage the territories on the eastern bank of the Euphrates", it said.

The Russian Ministry of Defence has used a videogame screenshot to accuse the USA of cooperating with ISIS.

"The American side clearly refused to carry out strikes on terrorists because "militants surrendered voluntarily" and their actions were assessed in accordance with the provisions of the Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War. They are now having some setbacks", Dillon said. According to the Russian MoD, Washington planned to "recover their combat capabilities,", so they could be used elsewhere in the Middle East as proxy forces on the Americans' behalf.

Russian Federation is called out for falsely accusing the US of aiding ISIS fighters.
