Please join us in cosponsoring our joint bipartisan resolution opposing Turkey’s military incursions into Northeastern Syria and expressing support for our Syrian Kurdish partners.
This resolution adds one additional resolved clause to the language in H. Res. 625.
On Monday October 6, 2019, President Trump announced his decision to withdraw U.S. military forces from the security coordination zone along the Syrian – Turkish border. This decision followed an October 6 phone call between President Trump and Turkish President
Erdogan in which President Erdogan indicated Turkish intentions to conduct unilateral military operations beyond the coordination zone.
Already, we have seen Turkish military units attack Syrian Kurdish communities and force Syrian Democratic Forces to divert critical personnel and resources from counter-ISIS operations. The situation unfolding is unacceptable. Turkey must immediately end its
military operation, which has already resulted in civilian casualties.
