ABC News Footage Of "Slaughter In Syria" Is Actually Footage From A Kentucky Gun Range

|

ABC News show "World News Tonight" issued a correction and apology Monday for reportedly using video from a Kentucky gun range while falsely claiming it depicted a fierce battle between Syrian Kurds and Turkish forces.

"This video, right here, appearing to show Turkey’s military bombing Kurd civilians in a Syrian border town," ABC's Tom Llamas said as the video played.





"CORRECTION: We’ve taken down video that aired on “World News Tonight" Sunday and “Good Morning America” this morning that appeared to be from the Syrian border immediately after questions were raised about its accuracy," the network tweeted. "ABC News regrets the error."

The Knob Creek Gun Range in the town of West Point, Kentucky, hosts a twice-yearly event called the "Military Gun Shoot & Military Gun Show."
