Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) called the civilian deaths reported in Syria following Turkey’s invasion and the Trump administration’s removal of U.S. troops “a tragic loss of life among friends shamefully betrayed,” in a tweet Wednesday.
The Utah senator referenced reports that Turkey had begun a military offensive in northern Syria against Kurdish forces that were allied with the U.S. in the fight against ISIS. The Associated Press has reported Turkish strikes in Syria have killed at least seven civilians.
“It’s a tragic loss of life among friends shamefully betrayed,” Romney tweeted. “We can only hope the President’s decision does not lead to even greater loss of life and a resurgence of ISIS.”
