In response to the US military strikes in Syria, Oxfam America’s Humanitarian Policy Lead Noah Gottschalk said:

By Oxfam

“Those who commit war crimes, including using chemical weapons, must be held accountable and their victims deserve justice, but last night’s military strikes are unlikely to achieve either.

“The ongoing bloodshed and war crimes in Syria are a stark reminder that Syrian civilians need our support now more than ever. Yet the Trump Administration still lacks a coherent strategy to actually bring an end to the conflict, and instead has sought to slash humanitarian aid and slam the door on Syrian refugees, only 11 of whom have been welcomed in the US this year.

“Syrian families deserve peace, safety and the chance to rebuild their lives - not more destruction. We must redouble our efforts to reach peace, and ensure Syrian families who remain in the country and who are living as refugees have access to the aid and safety they so clearly need.”
