Netanyahu: 'Full Support' for US Syria Strikes

Netanyahu: 'Full Support' for US Syria Strikes

US-led strikes in Syria on Saturday (April 14) are an "important signal" to Iran, Syria and and Lebanese militant group Hizbollah, a senior Israeli Cabinet minister said. "Tonight, led by the Americans, the US, France and Britain acted appropriately", said a statement attributed to an unnamed official in Jerusalem.

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. The coalition strikes reportedly caused heavy damage to Syria's chemical weapons infrastructure.

Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, says the USA -led airstrikes against Syria has been "a very serious blow".

The Pentagon says they believe the airstrikes "attacked the heart of the Syrian chemical weapons program". We met our objectives.

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White says, "It was mission accomplished".

Syrian air defenses responded firmly to the Western powers' attacks, shooting down most of the missiles fired at the country.


"Last night's operations were successful. So we are very confident that we have significantly crippled Assad's ability to produce these weapons".

Iranian officials have made calls to Syrian leaders in the wake of the US -led airstrikes against Syrian targets.

More than 100 missiles were said to have been launched in the so-called "retaliation".

Iran's president, Hassan Rouhani (hah-SAHN' roh-HAH'-nee), tells Syria's Bashar Assad (bah-SHAR' AH'-sahd) that America's goal is to justify its continued presence in the region.

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.

"This morning, the U.S., Britain, and France proved that their commitment to the fight against chemical weapons is not limited to statements only", he went on.
