Netanyahu warns over Iran after Syria strikes

Netanyahu warns over Iran after Syria strikes

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

African asylum seekers and Israeli activists protest in central Jerusalem, against their deportation, on April 4, 2018.

The prime minister also praised the strike's strategic goals, saying, "Early this morning, under American leadership, the United States, France and the United Kingdom demonstrated that their commitment is not limited to proclamations of principle".

U.S., British and French forces hit Syria with air strikes overnight in response to an alleged poison gas attack that killed dozens of people last week. Asked how much warning Israel had received, the official told Reuters: "Between 12 and 24 hours, I believe".

"We are determined and will continue to act against the Iranian establishment of bases (in Syria)", Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, a member of the security cabinet, said on Israel's Army Radio. A USA embassy spokesperson confirmed the Israeli official's comment to Reuters.

"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.

Hezbollah, like Iran and Russian Federation, is backing Assad in the war.

On Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke to Netanyahu and urged him to do nothing to destabilise Syria, according to a Kremlin statement.

Netanyahu also again warned over Iran's presence in Syria after previously pledging not to allow the country to entrench itself militarily next door. The directive was issued after several government officials lauded the allies' actions, including Housing Minister Yoav Galant, who called the strike "an important signal to the axis of evil - Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah", reported Channel 10.
