WASHINGTON, DC Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) released the following statement on the attacks by Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists against Kessab Armenians and Christians:

“The vicious attacks by al Qaeda affiliated terrorists against Armenians and other Christians in the Syrian town of Kessab in northern Syria are beyond appalling. These attacks, which reportedly originated in Turkey, reflect the depth of the depravity to which the conflict in Syria has fallen. I have been in touch with the State Department and have been assured that we are working with Armenian, Syrian and Turkish officials to determine exactly what happened and how to prevent further acts of such barbarity.

“The Syrian civil war has been a disaster for all of Syria’s people, but especially vulnerable minority populations.  I have been working on multiple fronts to help Syrian Christians, including working to secure humanitarian parole for Syrians with approved immigrant petitions and to ensure that humanitarian relief is distributed to all of Syria’s citizens.”
