J Street Horrified by Syria Chemical Weapons Attack

April 4, 2017

J Street is horrified and outraged by the apparent use of chemical weapons in northwest Syria that has killed dozens of civilians, including many children. There can be no justification for such a vile and inhuman attack.

While we have not engaged in policy advocacy on the Syrian conflict, our core values compel us to speak out against this flagrant crime against humanity. We call upon the United States government to redouble its efforts in working with the international community – including being firm with Russia about its obligations – to prevent the further use of chemical weapons and violence against civilians in this conflict.
