Video that Iranian state TV claimed showed a sniper shooting six ISIS soldiers dead is in fact game play from Medal of Honor

A short video that was circulated on Iranian state TV allegedly showing a sniper shooting six ISIS soldiers is in fact footage from the game ‘Medal of Honor’.

Iranian and Saudi Arabian TV stations have been playing the clips, claiming the sniper is a member of Hezbollah and the enemies are ISIS soldiers.

It has been published with outlandish headlines such as ‘six Daesh combatants are killed in 2 minutes by a Hezbollah sniper’.

One Iranian news outlet even went so far as to claim the gun used was the Iranian-made ‘Arash’ weapon.

    Iran has had numerous propaganda cases of “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”

    • Yea they have often provided some great laughs in the past.

    Now let’s not rush to judgement.

    Maybe a Hezbollah gaming clan was totally owning a noob ISIS clan in an online video game deathmatch, and the details got muddled in translation.
