On Tuesday, November 14, in the accounts of the military Department reported that the US is in Syria to help militants of the banned terrorist group “Islamic state”. The military reported that Americans cover the retreat of the terrorists to safe areas. As “clear evidence” was published a few frames of aerial images of a military column. But upon closer inspection it became clear that the submitted photo is not proof, and nothing short of screenshots from a computer game. The publication was soon removed, but small time was enough.
Russian military ridiculed. Runet users in eager rivalry began to post messages with “irrefutable evidence” and wonder, do valiant, the Agency has no success and has to invent the news about imaginary achievements on the Syrian front.

It turned out that the cause of the confusion was an error (intentional or accidental remains to be seen).
“The defense Ministry conducts a review in respect of a civilian employee of one of divisions, mistakenly attach the photographs to the statement of the military Department”, – said the Agency.
It also noted that Washington’s refusal of the command to apply November 9, strikes on the militants ‘ columns is “an objective fact, recorded in transcripts of the negotiations,” and published a real photo from the event.
