Russian accusation of US-ISIS cooperation based on computer game photo

Russia claims US is helping Isis - using video games as evidence

IS is a terrorist group banned in Russian Federation. The U.S. and Russia have broadly maintained a special deconfliction line to communicate the locations of U.S. and Russian air and ground forces in Syria since 2015, but Dillon said the Russian statement describes things that don't reflect typical procedures.

The Defense ministry's statements in English claimed that Russian drones filmed Islamic State convoys fleeing Syrian and Russian airstrikes along the Iraqi-Syrian border on November 9.

According to both the Russian and English language statements, the Russian military twice proposed joint operations with the United States to destroy the ISIS fighters fleeing Albu Kamal last week, but the US -led coalition declined.

But they did not provide any answer to the query why heavily armed IS militants were regrouping in the zone under the control of the worldwide coalition for new attacks on Syrian troops, the ministry said.

"The coalition's aviation tried to create obstacles for the aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces in this area to safely shield militants of the Islamic State, who are leaving Abu Kamal, from the strikes of government forces", the ministry said. According to the Defense Ministry, the routed Islamic Fighters would be sent back to reclaim the region themselves, but this time they would be flying the colors of the moderate Syrian Democratic Forces.

The militants had been forced to retreat from the city of Abu Kamal in the Syrian province of Deir al-Zour, one of the last remaining IS strongholds in Syria, by the advancing government troops.

The operation to liberate the town of Abu-Kamal in the southeast of the country on the Euphrates River near the Iraq border has shown that the US-led coalition has been directly supporting Daesh, according to the Defense Ministry.

"There is indisputable evidence that the United States pretends it is waging irreconcilable struggle against worldwide terrorism in front of the global community, while in reality it provides cover for the combat-ready Islamic State groups to let them regain strength, regroup themselves and advance USA interests in the Middle East", the ministry said.

A joint US-Russian operation against ISIS like that mentioned in the Russian statement would also be out of the ordinary, he said.
