U.S. military leaders to brief Senate on Syria on Tuesday: source
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Joseph Dunford will brief the U.S. Senate on Syria on Tuesday afternoon, a senior Senate source said on Monday.
Many U.S. lawmakers have been pushing President Donald Trump’s administration for more information about its Syria policy, especially since the weekend bombing of Syria by Washington and allies over a chemical weapons attack.
