THE IMAGES FROM THIS WEEK’S CHEMICAL ATTACK IN SYRIA ARE GRUESOME, SHOCKING — BUT IT IS NOT THE FIRST TIME DEADLY CHEMICALS HAVE HIT THE AREA.

((VO))

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S MISSILE LAUNCH MARKS A DIFFERENT U-S APPROACH TO A CIVIL WAR THAT’S PERSISTED FOR MORE THAN SIX YEARS.

THE FIRST SHOTS OF THE SYRIAN CIVIL WAR WERE FIRED IN MARCH OF 20-11 WHEN SYRIAN SECURITY FORCES GUNNED DOWN FOUR CIVILIAN PROTESTERS IN THE CITY OF DARAA.

FOR MORE THAN A YEAR, ANTI-GOVERNMENT DEMONSTRATIONS SPREAD AND PRESIDENT BASHAR ASSAD’S FORCES CONTINUED TO TIGHTEN THEIR HOLD ON THE SYRIAN PEOPLE — AS DIVISION BETWEEN THE TWO SIDES GREW.

IN AUGUST OF 20-12, FORMER U-S PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA ISSUED A WARNING TO THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT — THAT THE USE OF CHEMICAL WEAPONS BY ASSAD’S REGIME AGAINST THE SYRIAN PEOPLE WOULD BE A RED LINE — AND CROSSING IT WOULD WARRANT, QUOTE: “EXTREME CONSEQUENCES.”

A YEAR LATER, HORROR STRUCK THE DENSELY POPULATED NEIGHBORHOODS OF DAMASCUS.

IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT, NEARLY 15-HUNDRED CIVILIANS — INCLUDING AT LEAST 426 CHILDREN — KILLED, AS ROCKETS EXPLODED INTO A BLANKET OF SUFFOCATING GAS.

MANY IN THE REBEL-HELD SUBURB SUFFERED FROM CONVULSIONS, PINPOINT PUPILS, AND FOAMING AT THE MOUTH.

U-S INTELLIGENCE DETERMINING THAT DEADLY SARIN GAS WAS FIRED BY THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT.

FORMER PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYING AT THE TIME THAT HE WOULD SEEK CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL FOR AIRSTRIKES — BUT APPEARED TO LACK LEGISLATIVE SUPPORT.

THE SYMPTOMS DESCRIBED BY WITNESSES BACK IN 20-13 SHARED RESEMBLANCE TO WHAT THE WORLD WITNESSED TUESDAY.

A SUSPECTED SARIN GAS STRIKE THAT KILLED AT LEAST 68 PEOPLE IN THE REBEL-HELD IDLIB PROVINCE.

BOTH SYRIAN AND ALLIED RUSSIAN FORCES DENIED THAT CHEMICAL WEAPONS WERE USED IN THE STRIKE.

OTHER GOVERNMENTS — UNCONVINCED — CONDEMNING THE DEADLY ATTACK.

((ON-CAM))

THAT STRIKE ON A SYRIAN AIRFIELD IS BEING MET WITH PRAISE AND CRITICISM AROUND THE WORLD AS PRESIDENT TRUMPS ASKS OTHER COUNTRIES TO JOIN THE U-S IN SEEKING TO END, QUOTE: “THE SLAUGHTER AND BLOODSHED IN SYRIA.”

ATTACK IN ISTANBUL

JANUARY 1ST, 2017

((LORENA ESTRADA))
AT LEAST 39 PEOPLE DEAD, DOZENS MORE WOUNDED AFTER A MASS SHOOTING AT A NIGHTCLUB IN ISTANBUL, TURKEY.
THE PROVINCE’S GOVERNOR DESCRIBING THIS AS A TERROR ATTACK.

((VO))
YOU’RE LOOKING AT LIVE IMAGES OUT OF TURKEY THIS MORNING.
THE CROWDED NIGHTCLUB WAS SPRAYED WITH BULLETS ABOUT AN HOUR PAST MIDNIGHT, AS NEARLY SEVEN HUNDRED PEOPLE WERE CELEBRATING THE NEW YEAR.
NO TERRORIST GROUP HAS CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ATTACK, WHERE AT LEAST 19 FOREIGNERS AND ONE POLICE OFFICER WERE KILLED.
THE OWNER OF THE POPULAR NIGHTCLUB “REINA” (RAY-nuh) SAID SECURITY HAD BEEN BEEFED UP FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON AFTER AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS WARNED OF AN ATTACK IN TURKEY.
NOW WITNESSES SAYING PANICKING CLUB GO-ERS RESORTED TO JUMPING INTO FRIGID WATER TO ESCAPE THE CHAOTIC SCENE.
NEARLY 70 PEOPLE ARE HOSPITALIZED FOR INJURIES… AND THE MANHUNT FOR, WHAT IS BELIEVED TO BE, A LONE GUNMAN IS NOW UNDERWAY.
((ON-CAM))
EARLIER IN THE MONTH, A DOUBLE BOMBING IN ISTANBUL KILLED 45 PEOPLE, WOUNDING 154 OTHERS — A KURDISH MILITANT GROUP CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY FOR THAT DEADLY ATTACK.
