Netanyahu: 'Full Support' for US Syria Strikes

African asylum seekers who had been detained at Saharonim prison in southern Israel shown being released

"Last year, President Trump made clear that the use of chemical weapons crosses a red line".

Reports claim Israel was notified about the strikes ahead of time, but Netanyahu says he does not believe his country helped the U.S., France and the United Kingdom choose what areas to target.

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

The same resolve the US, Britain and France showed in standing up to Syrian President Bashar Assad's use of chemical weapons in Syria needs to be shown in preventing terrorist states and organizations from getting nuclear capabilities, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a phone conversation Saturday night with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Syria, Iran and Russian Federation say Israel was behind an air strike on a Syrian air base on Monday that killed seven Iranian military personnel, something Israel has neither confirmed nor denied.

Saturday is Israel's Sabbath, or the Jewish day of rest, when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu generally refrains from making official statements in his name.

Two Israeli ministers said Sunday that their country will continue to act against the Iranian military presence in Syria.

In outcome, the ultimate implications of the coalition attack largely depend on whether it is a one-off response or the beginning of a massive campaign against the Syrian government.

Prior to the PM's office statement on Saturday, Netanyahu reportedly issued a gag order on Israeli officials prohibiting them from speaking publicly about the US-led Syrian strike.

"If it is a multi-phased attack on Syria, we will see an Iranian response against Israel", said Dr. Dina Lisnyansky from the Political Studies Department at Bar Ilan University in Israel.

While Netanyahu came out in support of the operation, some Israeli diplomats are concerned that the attack will pave the way for an American withdrawal from Syria.

Israel has mounted air strikes in Syria on a regular basis, targeting suspected weapons shipments to Lebanese Hezbollah.
