Russia's Defence Ministry to investigate wrong photos used on Syria statement
15 November, 2017, 01:20 | Author: Brenda Erickson
Russia's defence ministry has tried to pass off what appear to be stills from a mobile phone military simulation game as "irrefutable evidence" of cooperation between U.S. forces and Islamic State militants in Syria, Guardian writes. From watching the video at the top that shows a clip from AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron, a video that was uploaded back in 2015, not anywhere close to November 9, 2017 as the images from the tweet would suggest.
"I certainly can't verify but I have seen a report that one of the pictures came from a video game".
The Russian Defense Ministry first posted the alleged proof on Tuesday morning, with one black-and-white image showing a top-down gunship view of a series of trucks supposedly leaving the eastern ISIS-held village of Al-Bukamal for the nearby Syria-Iraq border.
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". As you'd expect from someone caught with their trousers down, the original tweets and Facebook posts have since been deleted, but once you post something on the Internet it's there forever. It later reposted the same statement with different images.
Earlier today, the ministry tweeted three times in various languages, with a series of pictures accusing the U.S. of co-operation with the so-called Islamic state.
The ministry said US-led coalition planes instead tried to impede Russian Aerospace Forces operations in the area.
"However, the American side has failed to answer the question asked by the Russian side: why the ISIS terrorists left Syria on combat vehicles with heavy armament were regrouping in the coalition-controlled territories and preparing for new attacks [.]", said the statement.
The ministry is investigating its civil employee who attached a wrong photo to illustrate the ministry's statement on Abu Kamal.
