Israel Offers 'Full Support' For US-Led Airstrikes On Syria

In a statement released after the conclusion of the Sabbath, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, "A year ago, I declared Israel's full support for President [Donald] Trump's decision to take a stand against the use and spread of chemical weapons".

Netanyahu made a statement after the strikes on the Prime Minister's Office's official Twitter account.

Iran's involvement in Syria in support of Assad has alarmed Israel, which has said it will counter any threat.

The premier said he spoke with May on Saturday night following the joint strikes, which targeted three alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria.

"The American attack is an important signal to the axis of evil - Iran, Syria and Hezbollah", Gallant said.

"Syria and Russia are fighting a battle not only against terrorism, but also for protecting global law ... based on respect for state sovereignty and the will of their people", Assad said at a meeting with members of Russia's ruling United Russia Party.

Netanyahu warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that his "ceaseless efforts to acquire and use weapons of mass destruction... put Syria in danger".

Punitive US-led strikes on Syria are justified because of the "murderous actions" of the Damascus government, an Israeli official said today.

Also on Sunday, two Israeli ministers said their country would continue to act to prevent Iran from establishing itself militarily in Syria.

To that end, Netanyahu declared, "A year ago, I made clear that Israel fully supports the decision by President Trump to stand against the use and spread of chemical weapons", in an apparent reference to previous U.S. strikes against Syria in April 2017 following a sarin gas attack attributed to Assad's regime.

Trump's new national security adviser, John Bolton, was according to the Haaretz daily in contact with his Israeli counterpart Meir Ben Shabbat in the days ahead of the strike. The armed Iranian-backed Shi'ite movement Hezbollah, which has an extensive missile arsenal, last fought a war with Israel in 2006.
