WASHINGTON - Tonight, Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) issued the following statement in support of surgical U.S. military strikes in Syria in coordination with France and the United Kingdom:

“Once again, President Trump has sent a clear message to the Assad regime and its allies: chemical weapons attacks on innocent men, women, and children cannot be allowed and those who use them will be held accountable. 

“I fully support the president's decision to work with our allies and surgically strike facilities vital to Syria's chemical weapons program. It is the necessary and proportionate response to a dictator who brutally murders innocent women and children.”
