Press Release

Boca Raton, FL – Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-22) released a statement on the tragedy in Syria:

“The situation in Syria is an unimaginable tragedy. The cruelty of chemical weapons attacks is one more extraordinary deplorable aspect in a conflict that has taken over 100,000 Syrian lives. For the United States, there are no good options. While I do not support troops on the ground in Syria, we must continue to support the most vulnerable victims of the conflict through sustained humanitarian assistance. As we determine the most strategic option moving forward we should work with our international allies to ensure that any direct engagement has a clearly defined purpose and be cognizant of potential negative consequences.”
