Netanyahu warns over Iran after Syria strikes

Israel: Iran drone intercepted in Feb was Strike Assignment

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced earlier this month a new agreement with the U.N.'s refugee agency that would have16,000 African migrants resettled in Western nations and a similar number given temporary status in Israel. "Tonight, under American leadership, the United States, France and the United Kingdom enforced that line", another Israeli official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

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.

"It should be clear to President [Bashar] Assad 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", the statement concluded.

The US, allied with France and Britain, struck targets in and around Damascus in response to the Syrian regime's alleged use of chemical weapons against rebel-held targets in the town of Douma.

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".

"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 US embassy spokeswoman confirmed to Reuters that Israel had been notified before the strikes, but she provided no further details.

On April 9, 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.

Netanyahu also again warned over Iran's presence in Syria after previously pledging not to allow the country to entrench itself militarily next door.

Hezbollah, like Iran and Russian Federation, is backing Assad in the war. The coalition strikes reportedly caused heavy damage to Syria's chemical weapons infrastructure.
