Netanyahu praises United States strikes in Syria, warns about Iran”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared Israel's "full support" for Friday's US-led air strikes in Syria.The US, allied with France.

The airstrikes were launched under the pretext to punish Syrian government for the alleged use of chemical weapons in an attack on the rebel-held town of Douma near Damascus.

"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", Netanyahu said in a written statement.

Netanyahu expressed his hope that Syrian President Assad would acknowledge that "his reckless efforts to acquire and use weapons of mass destruction, his wanton disregard for global law and his provision of a forward base for Iran and its proxies endanger Syria".

An Israeli official said Israel was notified of the strikes ahead of time.

Asked whether Israel helped choose targets, the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: "Not to my knowledge". A USA embassy spokesperson confirmed the Israeli official's comment to Reuters.

President Donald Trump has expressed his intention to pull all USA forces out of Syria in the near future. Netanyahu made the statement on Saturday night when Sabbath is over. According to Israel's Channel Two, however, the Israeli security establishment believes that they could actually cause long-term harm to Israel's interests. Israel is anxious that this will allow Iran, which along with Russian Federation is a staunch ally of the ruling regime of Bashar al-Assad, to undertake a military buildup in Syria that will threaten Israel's security.

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