WATCH: Egyptian TV Host Hails Video Game Footage as Russian Airstrikes Against ISIS

Ahmed Moussa, known for outlandish rhetoric and factual errors, mistakenly touted video game footage posted to YouTube over five years ago as proof of Russian military power.

Short transcript:

Ahmed Moussa: "Let me tell you [pause] about Russia. Russia does not play around. America was just playing, it wasn't trying to hit Daesh [the Islamic State]. If anything, they were patting Daesh on the back, funding and arming them."

"The Russians did it. Yes, this is the Russian army, this is Russian weaponry, this is [Vladimir] Putin. Yes, they are countering terrorism, truly countering it. Now you will see a terrifying video, terrifying."
