U.S. Congress Asks President Trump Not To Withdraw From Syria

Israel Hayom: Some 400 members of US Congress ask Trump to address Syrian threats, ensure Israel’s defense

In bipartisan letter, some 79 senators, 303 representatives from both parties recommend Trump limit the presence of terrorists and extremists, strengthen Israel’s security, underscore Israel’s right to self-defense and increase pressure on Hezbollah.

A bipartisan letter signed by nearly 400 members from both sides of the aisle in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate was sent to U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday, calling on him to address threats in Syria and ensure Israel’s safety.

“At a time of grave insecurity in the Middle East, we are deeply concerned about the role that terrorist and extremist groups and U.S. adversaries continue to play, particularly in Syria,” stated the letter. “As some of our closest allies in the region are being threatened, American leadership and support are as crucial as ever.”
