US warned Israel of Syrian strikes in advance: report

Netanyahu Reiterates Israel's Support for US Decision to Attack Chemical Weapons in Syria

"Tonight, under American leadership, the United States, France and the United Kingdom enforced that line", the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

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 United States reportedly notified Israel of missile strikes against Syria in advance. "It was a successful mission", US Defense Department chief spokeswoman Dana White told reporters at the Pentagon. We met our objectives.

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

Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, says the US -led airstrikes against Syria has been "a very serious blow". "So we are very confident that we have significantly crippled Assad's ability to produce these weapons". He says there also is no indication that Russian air defense systems were employed early Saturday in Syria.

Trump Weighs More Robust Military Strike Against Syria
The attack began at 4 a.m. (0100 GMT) with missiles hitting the eastern suburbs of Damascus , shaking the grounds from a distance. British and French forces might be expected to take part in the response to the chemical attack , the former official said.


Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, says: "None of our aircraft or missiles involved in this operation were successfully engaged by Syrian air defenses".

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

Prime Minister Netanyahu, in addition to several other high-ranking Israeli officials, expressed approval of the allied strike on Syrian targets following the most recent chemical attack in the war torn nation.

Tensions have been running high between Israel and its arch-foe Iran, a key backer of the Syrian regime which provides military advisers and "volunteer" ground forces to Damascus.

Israel on Saturday lauded the joint airstrikes on Syria by the U.S., Britain and France as an "appropriate" response to the alleged gas attack in Syria.
