McConnell: Airstrikes Within Syria ‘Important Steps in Defeating ISIL’

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement today on the military strikes by the U.S. and coalition allies against ISIL within Syria:

“As part of the overall plan presented to the President last week by General Austin at U.S. Central Command headquarters, our military and coalition allies took the initial steps last night to attack targets within Syria.  These strikes against ISIL and the engagement of our regional allies are important steps in defeating ISIL and I support these ongoing efforts. The President is right to keep the country and Congress updated on military and diplomatic efforts—just as it will be important for the President to update on how the air campaign will fit into the overall strategy to destroy ISIL.”
