WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) released the following statement on the U.S. strikes in Syria:

“Earlier this week, a horrific chemical attack conducted by the Assad regime in a rebel-held area of Syria took the lives of dozens of innocent men, women and children. This treachery should not go unpunished, and it did not thanks to President Trump's leadership and swift and appropriate action. Last night, the United States held Assad accountable and responded with tactical strikes making a clear statement that his continued brutality against innocent civilians will not be tolerated. I applaud President Trump for his expedient action, and I thank the brave men and women of our armed forces who carried out this mission."
