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 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".
AFP was able to compare the images in the emailed defence ministry statement with the images of the videogame on YouTube and confirm the resemblance. It later reposted the same statement with different images. "So, again that is pretty consistent with what we have seen come out of Russian MoD, as being baseless, inaccurate and you know, completely false", he said.
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".
