Congressman French Hill supports targeted, proportional strike in Syria

WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. French Hill (AR-02) issued the following statement after U.S. military strikes in Syria.

“I support the targeted, proportional strike against the illegal chemical weapons facilities operated by the Assad government. Assad has relentlessly murdered his own people and is guilty of international war crimes. The multinational nature of the strikes, with American, British, and French forces engaged in this mission, demonstrates, combined with the targeted strike of April 2017, that the failed international approach of the previous six years is over. The failure of the global community and the previous administration to end Assad’s genocide has been a catastrophe with five million refugees and over 500,000 killed. I call on the U.S. Senate to join the House and pass the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act, to sanction and hold accountable the butchers of Syria and their allies.”
