“These sanctions are specifically designed to target the Turkish officials and institutions responsible for the bloodshed in Syria without senselessly hurting the Turkish people,” the Democratic chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Eliot Engel, said in a statement, as reported by Aljazeera.
The proposal comes while President Donald Trump has recently lifted sanctions he had been imposed on Turkey over Ankara’s incursion into Syria which resulted in the killing of scores of civilians and displacement of hundreds of thousands of others. Source
