Earlier this week, ISIS’s news agency Amaq reported the death of three Russian personnel in Raqqa following ISIS’s massive counterattack that expelled the Syrian Army from the province.

The Russian Defense Ministry issued a statement denying the claim.

“All the military servicemen, whose photos had been posted by the ISIS terrorist grouping, its Ukrainian “friends” and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a alive, healthy, and are in their units’ location.

The photos have been gained from the mobile phone, which had been stolen in the territory of Russia.

There is the only question: How were the photos posted on websites of the ISIS and teams of Ukrainian spiteful critics of Russia almost simultaneously?”

It appears that Ukrainian media sources, Amaq, and SOHR were the first to break the news of the alleged deaths of Russian active duty personnel in Raqqa province.
