COSPONSOR H.RES. 625, BIPARTISAN RESOLUTION OPPOSING TURKISH INCURSION INTO SYRIA

Please join us in cosponsoring our bipartisan resolution opposing Turkey’s military incursions into Northeastern Syria and expressing support for our Syrian Kurdish partners.

military operation, which has already resulted in civilian casualties.
