Russian Federation accuses U.S. coalition of hampering its anti-IS operation in Syria

Russia's Defense Ministry, however, remained adamant that the US was indeed "covering ISIS combat units to recover their combat capabilities, redeploy, and use them to promote the American interests in the Middle East" and shared new images it claimed were meant to be attached to the original post.

The Russian Defense Ministry on Tuesday accused the USA -led coalition of interfering with the Russian air force to protect retreating Islamic State (IS) militants.

The United States and its allies are helping Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists "directly", the Russian defence ministry is quoted by Tass news agency as saying.

The Russian Defense Ministry did what every other troll does when caught red-handed - it deleted both posts.

Week 11's best top-10 showdown?
The Pac-12 champ: That conference title game will be USC against either Washington State, Stanford or Washington. That number shrinks in Big Ten play down to 5.5 points, so taking the Spartans makes all the sense in the world.

The ministry claimed the image showed an IS convoy leaving a Syrian town last week aided by U.S. forces. At this time, TASS's original report with the claims against the USA is still posted, though the fake photos gave been taken down. The image went viral nearly immediately, but it was quickly debunked once someone recognized that the image was actually from a 2015 trailer for AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron.

In the corner of the image, however, a few letters of the developer's disclaimer can still be seen: "Development footage". This is a work in progress.

"The US refused to bomb an ISIS convoy fleeing from Abu Kamal under the pretext of the Convention on prisoners of war". "All content subject to change". "As proof, the MoD's social media account posted what they claimed were Russian drone photos of the convoy heading towards the Syrian-Iraqi border", the group said.

The Russian military is investigating claims that a civilian employee attached the bogus images, state-run media reported later Tuesday.

Responding to Russia's allegations in remarks carried by Reuters, a spokesman for the US-led coalition Col Ryan Dillon said the Russian allegations were "about as accurate as their air campaign".
