I strongly condemn Erdogans decision to attack Americas partners in Syria and President Trumps decision to compromise and let this happen... Congress must continue to work together to deal with the disastrous consequences of Trumps decision through a comprehensive cross-party approach.

The Republican representative of the committee, Macauer, pointed out that Turkeys military operations have caused casualties, jeopardized global security and created conditions that could lead to the return of the extremist organization Islamic State.

Allegedly, the U.S. military commander revealed that Turkey has so far launched air and artillery attacks mainly against targets of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), but has not crossed the red line set by Trump.

Trump said on the 11th: We dont want them to kill a lot of people... If sanctions are required, we will do so.
