This comes in as US President Barack Obama on Friday countered attempts by Russia and other members of the G20 to block plans for air strikes against Syria, enlisting support of ten fellow leaders.
CNN channel, who was the first to obtain the 13 different videos seen by members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, aired the graphic images of an chemical weapons attack in Syria on Aug 21.
"These are some of the hard-to-stomach images that the Obama administration has shown a select group of senators in closed-door briefings to make the case that a limited military attack on Syria is justified," CNN reported.
The administration reportedly told senators that their authenticity was verified by the intelligence community.
Meanwhile, the Obama administration continued to garner support both from inside the Congress and at the international level for their plans of a limited military attack on the Syrian regime with Secretary of State John Kerry travelling throughout the Europe to gatherinternational support.
The US Senate is expected to vote on the issue early this week.
