Israel Offers 'Full Support' For US-Led Airstrikes On Syria

Israel: Iran drone intercepted in Feb was Strike Assignment

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

"Israel maintains full freedom of action on its borders we will not comprise on less than this", Education Minister and security cabinet member Naftali Bennett said Sunday on Israeli radio.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Western powers for launching missile strikes in Syria in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons there, and called for the same "zero-tolerance" policy to be adopted towards preventing "terrorist states" from acquiring nuclear weapons, referring to Israel's main enemy Iran.

Netanyahu said he told May over the phone on Saturday night that the airstrike sent "an important global message of zero tolerance for the use of non-conventional weapons".

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.

Lebanon's Iran-backed militant group Hezbollah early in the day said that Israel had made a "historic blunder" using all the attack.




Asked whether Israel helped choose targets, the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: "Not to my knowledge".

Israel said on Friday that an Iranian drone shot down in February by its air force had been fitted with explosives intended.

Netanyahu on Saturday ordered his government ministers not to comment on the American-led strike in coalition with Britain and France.

Israel similarly coordinated its alleged attack in Syria on April 9 with the United States before it was launched, but not with Russian Federation, despite the two countries having established a coordination hotline to avoid clashes over Syria.

Three targets were struck according to the United States, including a research centre in Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facitiy west of Homs, and a key command post also near Homs.
