Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) warned on Tuesday that Turkey would face “sanctions from hell” if it moves its military into northern Syria, in the wake of President Trump‘s decision to draw back U.S. troops.

“If Turkey moves into northern Syria, sanctions from hell — by Congress — will follow. Wide, deep, and devastating sanctions,” Graham tweeted.

The article goes on to state the following:

Turkish officials told Reuters on Tuesday that their military on Monday night bombed the Syria-Iraq border to prevent the Kurds from using the transit route to fortify their positions in the area. A security official said the intention was to cut off the road “before the operation in Syria.”

The Ambassador of Turkey to the U.S. responded to Graham’s warning, tweeting, “Dear Senator, our main objectives are ensuring safety and security of our citizens, achieving peace and stability in our region and preserving territorial integrity and political unity of Syria. Which one of these goals, in your mind, justify these undue threats to a KEY NATO ALLY.”
