Senator David Perdue Condemns Atrocities Occurring At The Hands Of ISIS

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement after Secretary Kerry confirmed ISIS’ brutal actions in Syria are, in fact, genocide:

“On too many occasions, the U.S. has been slow to act while thousands of innocent people have been massacred because of their nationality, ethnicity, or religion. It is tremendously important that today, our nation condemns the atrocities that are occurring at the hands of ISIS. For months, the world has witnessed this barbaric terrorist group target, torture, kill, and enslave members of Yazidi, Christian, and Shiite minorities in the Middle East. The first step in putting an end to genocide is recognizing and denouncing it when it occurs. What’s needed now is a final commitment to stop this genocide in Syria.”
