Las Vegas—Today Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District issued the following statement in response to the U.S. strike in Syria.

“Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons this week is another heinous crime in a humanitarian crisis that has cost 500,000 lives and displaced more than one million families from their homes. As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I hope the Trump administration details to Congress and the country a long-term strategy that helps bring stability to the region and end the massacre of innocent lives. The complexities of the crisis in Syria cannot be taken lightly or solved with bombs. Military force should always be an option of last resort.”
