In this video Prof. Noam Chomsky comments on the recent terror attacks in Paris committed by the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/ISIS/DAESH) .

Summary of the Terror attacks in Paris:

On the 13th of November 2015, a number of terrorist attacks took place in Paris which claimed the lives of 130 people and injured circa 368. Targets included the Stade de France in San Denis, which was struck by three suicide bombers, the Bataclan concert venue, where an hostage situation ensued resulting in the majority of deaths, and around cafes and restaurants in Paris. The self proclaimed “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” (ISIL/ISIS/DAESH) took responsibility for the attacks stating that it was in retaliation against French air strikes targeted on ISIL in Syria & Iraq. On the 15th of November, 2015, France responded by launching another air strike involving 12 planes that dropped 20 bombs. This air strike was conducted under Opération Chammal, which was initially launched on the 19th of September 2014 in Syria & Iraq.

ISIL’s attacks are considered one of the “deadliest” on French soil since the “Paris Massacre on October 17, 1961”, which was committed by the French National Police that claimed the lives of circa 200 people.
