Press Release

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Sam Graves issued the following statement in response to last night’s American missile strikes in Syria. Earlier this week more than 80 people were killed in a chemical attack on the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun. On Thursday night the United States launched a targeted strike on the airfield in Syria from where that chemical attack was launched. 

“This week dozens of innocent people were murdered in a horrific chemical weapons attack in Syria. Our response makes clear that the United States is committed to preventing international war crimes and that we strongly condemn the use of weapons of mass destruction, especially against innocent civilians. I applaud President Trump for his decisive action and will continue to support any effort to ensure Assad is held accountable,” Rep. Graves said.
