The Department of State boasted of “bringing peace” to Syria in 2015 in a blog post inspired by a hashtag Thursday, although the country is still being torn apart by Islamic State and a devastating civil war.
Inspired by the hashtag “2015in5Words” and an email from Secretary of State John Kerry charting out the year ahead, State Department spokesman John Kirby compiled a list of “pivotal foreign policy events” for the department in 2015 that includes: “Bringing peace, security to Syria.”
The entry below cites U.S. humanitarian aid to the region and a State Department push for President Bashar Assad to relinquish his regime as support for the claim, although it acknowledges the conflict rages on.
“From the humanitarian crisis endured by refugees fleeing violence, to the reprehensible human rights violations and violence carried out by the Assad regime, the Syrian people have borne a heavy load,” Kirby writes below the “bringing peace, security” header.
The paragraph left out any mention of ISIS, which has established a de facto capital in the Syrian city of Raqqa, and controls large swaths of territory there. In a separate win, however, Kirby boasts the State Department is “Winning Fight Against Violent Extremists.”
