Congressman Sires Statement Condemning Terrorist Attacks in Istanbul
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Sires issued the following statement condemning the terrorist attacks in Istanbul, Turkey.
“Yesterday’s attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport was a cowardly and hideous assault on a key ally in the fight against ISIL. I am disgusted by the terrorist tactics that continuously target innocent men, women, and children. These attacks are unfortunately another example of how militant extremists’ only goal is to instill fear amongst the people for their own twisted satisfaction.
I extend my deepest condolences to the victims and their loved ones. We stand with our friends in Turkey as they begin to heal through this difficult time and assure them we are committed to holding all those responsible for perpetrating this act accountable.”
