Hirono Statement on U.S. Airstrikes in Syria

Senator Mazie K. Hirono, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement:

“The repeated use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime against his own people is an atrocity and breach of international law, and the international community must hold him accountable.

“The Civil War in Syria adds layers of complexity in a country and region where there are no easy answers and opportunities for missteps are great.

“In light of this, President Trump must present a coherent strategy for addressing the ongoing situation in Syria, including our own responsibility in confronting the humanitarian catastrophe and refugee crisis.”
