Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the following statement on the recent attack on Camp Liberty:

“Today’s reported attack, yet another deadly assault on civilians in Camp Liberty, is deeply troubling. The Iraqi government must provide immediate aid to the wounded and suffering. 

“With growing Iranian involvement in Iraq, the security situation around Camp Liberty is increasingly risky. The Iraqi Government made an international commitment to protect the Camp’s residents.  The U.S. and international community must demand accountability.”
