    A photo tweeted by The Russian Ministry of Defense Tuesday as "irrefutable" proof that the United States has allied with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) turns out to be from a video game.

    Early Tuesday morning, the Russian Ministry of Defense tweeted what appeared to be aerial photos of a convoy of vehicles traveling on a dirt road.

    "This is the irrefutable evidence that there is no struggle against terrorism as the whole global community believes. 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," it wrote in the English version of the tweet posted in both English and Russian, as captured on archive.org.

    Twitter users quickly noticed one of the images used as evidence came from another source - the YouTube Trailer mobile phone video game "AC-130 Gunship Simulator."

    In that image, the Ministry of Defense image did not cut out all of the text from the trailer warning users "Development footage. This is a work in progress. All content is subject to change. The image clearly contains a piece of the words "All content."

    Another image appears to be taken from an old Iraqi Ministry of Defense video.

    The Russian Ministry of Defense has since deleted its tweet.
