Washington, D.C. — Representative Peter Roskam (R-IL) released the following statement condemning the violent actions taken by the Assad regime against their own people and calling for action:

“I am horrified by the Assad regime’s barbaric slaughter of men, women and children in Eastern Ghouta. Pro-Assad forces have killed over 600 Syrians in the past week in bombing attacks targeting civilian population centers, including hospitals and medical centers – the report of another Assad regime chemical attack on Eastern Ghouta necessitates our action.

“We must use all tools at our disposal to stop the killing, free the people of Syria from Assad’s tyrannical grip and hold his regime and his backers in Tehran and Moscow responsible for their crimes against humanity.”
