Russian Federation posts video game screenshot as 'irrefutable evidence' of USA helping ISIS

Earlier this year Russian media accused President Vladimir Putin of passing off footage of the American military fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan as the efforts of Russia's air force in Syria during a television interview.

Asked about Russian allegations of the US helping Islamic State around Albu Kamal, Colonel Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the USA -led coalition fighting Islamic State, said: "The Russian ministry of defense statements are about as accurate as their air campaign and I think that is a reason for them to start, you know, coming out with their latest barrage of lies".

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 Russian military is investigating claims that a civilian employee attached the bogus images, state-run media reported later Tuesday. The Russian Ministry of Defence has used a videogame screenshot to accuse the USA of cooperating with ISIS.

United Nations calls on Saudi coalition to open Yemeni seaports
Geneva: The U.N. aid coordinator called on the Saudi-led coalition to open all Yemen's seaports urgently on Tuesday, saying millions of lives were at risk.

The U.S. military said the militants were voluntarily surrendering and so fell under the provisions of the Geneva Convention on the treatment of prisoners of war.

"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's official account said the black-and-white images were taken on November 9 near the Syria-Iraq border and provided "irrefutable proof that the United States is providing cover to IS combat units".

Russian Federation and the US -led coalition are backing separate offensives against the IS in Syria, with both advancing in oil-rich Deir al-Zour in the east of the war-torn country.
