Russian Federation says USA providing cover for Islamic State in Syria

US directly supports IS terrorists in Syria — Russian Defense Ministry

He said the Russian defence ministry's attempts at propaganda went against the spirit of joint statements by both countries leaderships on their commitment to defeating Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

The ministry claimed in a Facebook post and tweet on Tuesday that the picture showed an "Isis automobile convoy" fleeing Abu Kamal, Syria, under U.S. protection on November 9.

The US refused to conduct airstrikes over the leaving IS convoy.

"I would say the Russian Ministry of Defense statements are about as accurate as their air campaign".

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

The Americans failed to answer the Russian side's question on why IS militants leaving in combat vehicles heavily equipped are regrouping in the area controlled by the global coalition to conduct new strikes over the Syrian army near Abu Kamal, the Russian Defense Ministry stressed.

An image circulated by the Russian military Tuesday purportedly showing "irrefutable evidence" of USA forces assisting Islamic State terrorists was actually taken from a 2015 video game.

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.

The now-deleted Twitter post, which was published today by the Russian Ministry of Defence account in Russian, English and Arabic, said that the images showed "irrefutable evidence that #US are actually covering ISIS combat units to recover their combat capabilities, redeploy, and use them to promote American interests in Middle East".

Militants of the Islamic State acting under the guise of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) could act as the local "pro-American forces" allegedly controlling the city.
