Early on November 14th, the Russian Ministry of Defense posted messages on social media in Russian, Arabic, and English describing "irrefutable evidence" that US forces were saving, not attacking ISIS forces.
Russia's military admitted Tuesday that footage it initially claimed showed cooperation between the USA and the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) in Syria actually originated from a computer game, but defended its findings with alternative evidence.

The images were from the game AC-130 Gunship Simulator, available for iOS and Android.
The social media post for both its Russian language channel and the English-language version were also deleted following the revelation that the scene was from a video game.
