Israel fully supports US-led airstrikes on Syria: Netanyahu

The Latest Israel says Syria brought airstrikes on itself

Pentagon officials said the attacks targeted the heart of Assad's programs to develop and produce chemical weapons.

"Trump's resolve and Israel's support remain unchanged", Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu said Israel would not allow Iran to establish itself in Syria, according to his office.

Iran's state-run IRNA news agency says Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (hah-meh-neh-EE') has called the US -led airstrikes on Syria a "military crime".

It should be clear to Assad that his reckless efforts to acquire and use weapons of mass destruction, his disregard for worldwide law and his provision of a base for Iran and its proxies endanger Syria, said Netanyahu.

The Pentagon says none of the missiles filed by the US and its allies was deflected by Syrian air defenses, rebutting claims by the Russian and Syrian governments. Previously, Uganda has denied that a deportation deal with Israel exists.

"Syria and Russia are fighting a battle not only against terrorism, but also for protecting worldwide 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.

"If the attacks continue and will be in a larger scale, chances for retaliation against Israel grow", Zehavi told Xinhua.

Johnson tweeted Saturday that he welcomed the news of the military strike against major chemical weapons facilities in Syria in concert with "our USA and French allies".

In addition, Russia's involvement since late 2015 has further complicated the situation in Syria, placing Israel in a more sticky position.

Other sources expressed concerns over Russia's reaction to the attack.

"If the dialogue between Israel and Russian Federation stops, it will be even more hard", she warned.

"For Israel, the attack is important as a message that Iran, Syria are not immune from US involvement in the Middle East", Zehavi said.

Syrian television reported that Syria's air defenses, which are substantial, responded to the attack.

"If it will be followed by a consistent policy, it may mean that the U.S.is back in town, which is good news for Israel", she added.
