Tuesday, while the eyes of this nation were focused on the Republican convention, U.S. airstrikes in the northern Syrian ISIL-controlled city of Manbij killed at least 56 civilians, injuring dozens more. The Syrian Observatory said 11 children were among those killed.

This airstrike is one of numerous U.S. strikes that have taken the lives of countless Syrian civilians.

As bombings by the U.S. coalition, the Assad government and Russia continue to devastate the already war-torn country, innocent Syrians suffer severely from a lack of clean water, electricity, medical care, and food. In Manbij, 70,000 people are trapped between warring parties, with no access to food or supplies.

To help this besieged population, the United States should drop food, not bombs.

The U.S. military has said that they are being “extraordinarily careful to make sure that airstrikes selectively hit militant fighters, but we know that that innocent civilians are often the victims.

We continue to mourn the victims of the strikes in Manjib this week. We ask you join us in ensuring that senseless killings like these do not take the lives of more Syrian civilians.

Tell President Obama: Drop food, not bombs, on Syria!

In solidarity,
Alice, Alli, Aniqa, Ariel, Baheya, Chelsea, Janet, Jodie, Jules, Mariana, Martha, Medea, Nancy, Rebecca, Rodas, Sam and Tighe.
