Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following the withdrawal of U.S. military personnel from Syria, Rep. Scott Tipton (CO-03) released the following statement:

“For years, the Kurds have valiantly fought alongside the U.S. military keeping ISIS terrorists and its sympathizers at bay in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East. Immediately following the announcement that the U.S. would withdraw troops from Syria, Turkey ramped up its military presence further threatening instability and inciting more violence in an already tragic war. The Turkish government must be held accountable for its aggressive acts of war against U.S. allies and the murder of civilians.”
