The Russian defence ministry attempted to pass off an image from a video game as "irrefutable evidence" that the U.S. was cooperating with Isil in Syria. "Americans peremptorily rejected to conduct airstrikes over the ISIS terrorists on the pretext of the fact that, according to their information, militants are yielding themselves prisoners to them and now are subject to the provisions of the Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War", the Russian Defense Ministry said.
The Russian Defense Ministry also provided authentic photos of an IS militant convoy heading for the Syrian-Iraqi border.
The Russian Defense Ministry's allegations that US-led forces refrained from attacking fighters from the Daesh terror group as they fled the Syrian city of Abu Kamal are inaccurate, Operation Inherent Resolve spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon told reporters on Tuesday.
The Russian military is investigating claims that a civilian employee attached the bogus images, state-run media reported later Tuesday.

Russia's Defense Ministry earlier on Tuesday published photographs that it said proved that USA forces refrained from launching airstrikes against forces of the Islamic State terror group as they fled Syria's Al Bukamal.
According to the Defense Ministry, the United States provided cover for Islamic State militants to use them in attempts to attain its own aims in the Middle East. However, the Conflict Intelligence Team claims in its statement the Russian defence ministry has used an image of presumed jihadists taken from the trailer of a videogame present on YouTube.
The defence ministry claims the jihadist fighters operate disguised as members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) with U.S. support and that the government offensive on Abu Kamal has interrupted American plans to create a pro-US area on the eastern shore of the Euphrates River.
