USA warned Israel of Syrian strikes in advance

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu backs the joint airstrikes carried out against Syria in response to a suspected chemical attack.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday voiced his "total support" for US-led air strikes against Syria over its alleged use of chemical weapons.

In a written statement, Netanyahu said the decision taken by the USA and backed by the United Kingdom and France shows that the commitment of these countries to combat chemical weapons is not limited to the declaration.

The premier said he spoke with May on Saturday night following the joint strikes, which targeted three alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria. "I added that this policy also needs to be expressed in preventing terrorist states and organizations from obtaining nuclear capabilities".

Netanyahu warned that the Syrian government is endangering itself by giving Iran and its proxies a "forward base".

Israel is endorsing the decision to use military action in Syria.

The timing couldn't be worse for a Los Angeles squad that is already without injured defensemen Jake Muzzin and Derek Forbort. I have watched this replay numerous times and still can't really comprehend it.

On Monday seven Iranian personnel were among 14 people killed in an early-morning strike on the T-4 airbase in Syria, with regime allies Iran and Russian Federation blaming Israel for the attack.

The attack was widely attributed to Israel, thought it has neither confirmed nor denied responsibility.

Two Israeli ministers said Sunday that their country will continue to act against the Iranian military presence 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 USA strikes against Syria in April 2017 following a sarin gas attack attributed to Assad's regime.

Israel has sought to avoid direct involvement in Syria's civil war, but acknowledges carrying out dozens of air strikes there to stop what it says are advanced arms deliveries to Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah, another of its enemies. The armed Iranian-backed Shi'ite movement Hezbollah, which has an extensive missile arsenal, last fought a war with Israel in 2006.
