This resolution would condemn the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for its atrocities against the people of Syria, along with the governments of Iran and Russia for supporting Assad in his commission of war crimes. It would note that the deployment of more than 68,000 Russian troops, plus the introduction of over 3,000 Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and 20,000 Iran-controlled militia fighters has helped the Assad regime survive. Further, the resolution calls for a political settlement that results in a Syrian government that isn’t a threat to its own people and abandons its chemical weapons program, while not giving Iran a platform to threaten Syria’s neighbors such as Israel.
Additionally, the resolution would call on the president and secretary of state to determine whether militias operating in Syria under the command of the IRGC are terrorist organizations that should be sanctioned.
As a simple resolution, this legislation is non-binding and wouldn’t advance beyond the House if passed.
