Benjamin Netanyahu: Israel fully supports US-led airstrikes on Syria

Earlier this month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced he had signed a deal with the United Nations to resettle thousands of African asylum-seekers in the West on the condition Israel granted an equal number of migrants temporary residency status.

The official went on to say that Syria's "murderous actions" jeopardize the country's territory, forces and leadership.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Sunday over Iran's presence in Syria after Western strikes in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons and a recent attack attributed to Israel.

In a written statement, Netanyahu said the decision taken by the USA and backed by the United Kingdom and France shows that the commitment of these countries to combat chemical weapons is not limited to the declaration.

At least 49 people died in the suspected chemical attack in Eastern Ghouta according to medical groups and rescuers, which prompted the US-led strikes, with other estimates reaching over a hundred.

Netanyahu said he told May that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "must understand that when he allows Iran and its proxies to establish a military presence in his country, he endangers Syria as well as the stability of the region".

"The United States and its allies have no proof and, without even waiting for the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to take a position, have carried out this military attack", said the foreign ministry in a statement.

Hezbollah, like Iran and Russian Federation, is backing Assad in the war. Netanyahu made the statement on Saturday night when Sabbath is over.

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

Netanyahu said Israel would not allow Iran to establish itself in Syria, according to his office. The three targets reportedly had had been evacuated last week out of fear of retaliatory strikes.
