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

Russia's Ministry of Defense recently shared images on social media which it claimed were proof that U.S. forces are working in conjunction with Islamic State fighters in Syria and Iraq to promote American interests in the Middle East. Setting aside the fact that the statement is patently ridiculous on its face, the real botch came to light when it was discovered that the "proof" included a still from a trailer for a mobile game called AC-130 Gunship Simulator.

This week, Russian Federation took to social media to announce it had "irrefutable evidence" that the United States is helping ISIS.

The photographs have been deleted after the fact-checking organisation Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT) accused the ministry of using a video game screenshot and old conflict photographs.

In the corner of the image, however, a few letters of the developer's disclaimer can still be seen: "Development footage. All content subject to change".

"Regarding Abu Kamal, this is not the only case when the US spares terrorists", Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov was quoted as saying by Russia's official TASS news agency on Tuesday. It later reposted the same statement with different images.

It repeated the claim it was "irrefutable evidence that U.S. are actually covering Isis [IS] combat units to recover their combat capabilities, redeploy, and use them to promote the American interests in the Middle East". As the Syrian military's campaign outpaced a parallel anti-ISIS offensive by the US and the Syrian Democratic Forces, a mostly Kurdish coalition of Arabs and ethnic minorities, Russian Federation accused the USA of helping ISIS escape as Syrian troops and their allies closed in on Al-Bukamal earlier this week.

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.
