Researchers at Conflict Intelligence Team, a nonprofit group that investigates Russian military activities, subsequently reported that three other images shared by Russia as "irrefutable evidence" of US forces assisting the Islamic State were actually taken from video released by the Iraqi Ministry of Defense in 2016.
