Press Release

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) and U.S. Representative Jesus “Chuy” García (IL-04) today released the following statement regarding the latest brutal chapter in the Syrian civil war in Idlib:

“The latest horrific chapter in the Syrian civil war currently unfolding in Idlib is an affront to all humanity.  The deliberate targeting of hospitals and schools are war crimes, and the blame rests squarely with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and his cynical enablers in Moscow and Tehran.  It's long past time for President Trump to use his special relationship with President Putin to tell him to end this latest humanitarian nightmare.  Foreign policy by tweet and insults accomplishes nothing.”
