Russia is called out for falsely accusing the U.S. of aiding ISIS fighters.
On Tuesday, the Russian Ministry of Defense tweeted a photo they claimed was proof the U.S. was aiding ISIS military forces.
The photo showed an aerial angle of vehicles traveling on a dirt road.
Twitter users immediately noticed the photo was a screen shot taken from a Youtube video of the so-called video game “AC-130 Gunship Simulator.”
Another image the agency tweeted was taken from an old Iraqi Ministry of Defense video.
The Russian Ministry of Defense has since deleted their accusatory tweets.
