On November 14, the Russian Defense Ministry released a series of photos allegedly showing an ISIS withdrawal from the Syrian city of al-Bukamal. The ministry said that the US-led coalition assisted the ISIS terrorists withdrawing from the city.

However, the photos were fake.

One of the photos was just a part of the AC-130 Gunship Simulator video. Others were screenshots from videos showing airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq.

Previously, the US Defense Department was the key body affected by this problem. The Russian Defense Ministry was aiming to rely on facts. However, now we observe another fact showing a mistake or a forgery from the Russian side.

The question appears: what is this?

  • Is this a gross negligence of some persons in the media department?
  • Is this an act of informational sabotage?
  • Or this is an example of providing false data from the region to Moscow?

By 13:03 CET, the Russian Defense Ministry had deleted the photos from its social media accounts.

    the world should realise who the real fakes are by now – if not, they must be lapdogs and are as bad as their evil masters

      • Boris Kazlov

        You eat rat meat burgers, Lavrov and Shoigu just released real proof of US “collusion” with Daesh

        • Jens Holm

          No, they did not.

  • Garga

    How a screenshot from a game mixed up with military aerial pics?
    I’m more inclined to believe it was an act of informational sabotage.
    This way they will dismiss any future evidence of US-ISIS collaboration the Russians provide by reminding us all about this one single photo.

    • Jens Holm

      Its not the first time. But this accusion is a very big one and people has believed it.

      Thats not mixted up and a systematic russian sabotage of facts.

    • Tudor Miron

      You’re right – that Jensy troll already jumps at this opportunity. They must be feeling very smart now but they forget one thing – the truth is much more sustainable than their lies and provocations.

        No tudor, the sheeple always remember the one lie and forget the many examples of truth.

        • Blucross

          I agree, the first lie is IMPORTANT, but to stick around in human consciousness the lie needs to have a piece of truth, as in “Hands up , don’t shoot”.

        • Tudor Miron

          Sheeple can do what ever they want. After all one should respect other people and even respect their right to remain ignorant – that’s their choice.

    • Thegr8rambino

      The Israeli, American, French, and NATO made weapons found by SAA that the terrorists used is evidence enough!

      • Gabriel S.

        You know, that these were the weapons from the fleeing Iraqi military though right? I mean you should know that basically every Hummvee, M4, M16, M40, Mortars, Artillery pieces, basically everthing was supplied by the US for the Iraqis during operation Iraqi Freedom.

        • Thegr8rambino

          really??? israel gave iraq their weapons too?? lol!!!

          • Gabriel S.

            What kind of weapons of israeli origin were found in ISIS stockpiles? Enlighten me.

          • Thegr8rambino

            mines, guns

        • Kira Binkley

          The Iraqi’s fled (according to the Yanks, who had to have someone to blame for their own incompetence) and the weapons got to Syria? Did the Yanks take them to Syria, as well?
          Think, Gabe, think!!

          • Gabriel S.

            First off, only the Iraqi army was in mosul during the time of attack, so the “yanks” couldn’t have fucked up, since they were not present.

          • Gabriel S.

            Secondly, after ISIS took mosul, they looted it for weapons armored vehicles, which explains why they are driving so many soviet era tanks and APCs in their mosul propaganda videos.

          • Gabriel S.

            Last but not least, the “yanks” didn’t take the weapons to syria, because they did not loot mosul, ISIS did. And when you have a war to fight you try to administer your equipment. Since Iraq was easily conquered (Iraqis run fast) they transported the weapons and equipment to syria (Syria and Iraq are neighbouring countries) to fight assad and the kurds.

          • Kira Binkley

            Right. “Pears I’m (or was) talking to a Yankee poor loser.
            Learn some real history, will you?

    • Mikronos

      “Bellingcat” was in on the ‘debunking’. I think he sets up accounts in Russia to find the ‘evidence’ he wants.

    • occupybacon

      if the russians are so easy to troll, and so often it happens, i don’t see how this makes them less ridiculous.

  • alejoeisabel

    Thank you for keeping the Russian Defense Ministry’s feet to the fire.

    • Jens Holm

      Very cheep only with 20 toes for that. Its systematicly manipulations made by many clever people on all levels. Kind of making a car.

  • Kira Binkley

    Sometimes I wonder if the world is just plain going insane. Anybody?
    Not this particular article, but for some other news events…

    • You can call me Al

      I have even got to the stage, on occasions, where I reckon we are in the matrix.

    • Jens Holm

      I agree. Most people here prefare the killings should go on and peace for them is only, when all others are dead or kissing their feet.

      More like we are not allowed to fight for the good girls and guys to win.

  • Kira Binkley

    Confusing as hell, isn’t it, El Trumpo?

    • Jens Holm

      US has and are making their own dirt as well.

  • The Farney Fontenoy

    It’s unlike the ministry to make such an embarrassing error, traitors in the ranks?

    • Jens Holm

      Its all the way up and down and not only in this camp. Very optimistic to tell the wars there only are made by some minister.

    • Kira Binkley

      No, just deception in the “void”.

    The pro assad camp humiliated by southfront nice job

    Those statements and photos were false to make us believe the forces of isis was larger than it was.This deliberate and misleading fake news from the russian defence ministry was to divert attention from the humiliating loss, and high casualties among the pro goverment forces most of them hezbollah who faild to capture the city.The pro goverment forces atacking isis in Abukumal is estimated from 3000 to 4000 strong, this force was aided by russian ground advisers and the russian areospace. This fortified city was defended by 800 to 1100 isis fighters who put up fierce resistance. It is believed among those isis fighters there are some 300 heavily armed elite units of the islamic state with heavy weapons and high ranking commanders, including their leader Abu Bakr Al Bagdhadi, thats why the isis units are putting up a unbelievable stiff resistance against staggering odds,
    in other words All in for them victory or martyrdom in the last strong hold of the so called islamic state.

    • Tudor Miron

    Where’s the updated report with the correct photos? Is Southfront prepared to give ammunition to the White House’s Ministry of Bullsh*t now? I expected to see an up-to-date story here, but I’ll give you guys the benefit of the doubt. As for the Pentagon, there have been so many different reports of US and “coalition” assistance to ISIS without any reaction – why would we expect one now? In fact, it seems the only reaction is to quickly spot this headline and exploit it for propaganda effect – is it not more likely this was a simple mix-up of image files?
