Russian Defence Ministry Uses Screenshot From iPhone Game To Accuse The U.S. Of Helping ISIS

Friday news

The coalition led by the United States has been accused of “direct cooperation and support” of ISIS by the Russian Defence Ministry. “This is the irrefutable evidence that there is no struggle against terrorism as the whole global community believes,”raged the Ministry in a Facebook post which included the image below. “The US are actually covering the ISIS combat units to recover their combat capabilities, redeploy, and use them to promote the American interests in the Middle East.”

Eliot Higgins, founder of the investigative website Bellingcat, had another explanation. Check out the trailer for AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron on iOS from back in 2014.

Oddly, the Russian Defence Ministry have since deleted their post, maybe they swapped to Android. At least the games creators will be happy, the video was languishing on a few thousand views and now has over 1.2 million.
