Marsha Blackburn Report: Holding Turkey Accountable For Its Atrocities

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Protecting our Kurdish partners is a priority. Turkey must be held accountable for its destabilization of northern Syria, and ISIS must not be allowed to resurge. 

While I am encouraged that the lines of communication are open, this five-day pause in hostilities does not make up for the lives lost, families displaced, and homes destroyed by the Turkish incursion. Not only are we abandoning our Kurdish partners, but Putin is exploiting our withdrawal. We must not cede power to Moscow. 

Senator Marsha Blackburn.
