Netanyahu warns over Iran after Syria strikes

Howard TerryApr 16, 2018

"Trump's resolve and Israel's support remain unchanged", Netanyahu said.

In outcome, the ultimate implications of the coalition attack largely depend on whether it is a one-off response or the beginning of a massive campaign against the Syrian government.

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.

A U.N. Security Council diplomat says the council will meet later Saturday at Russia's request. A US embassy spokesperson confirmed the Israeli official's comment to Reuters.

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.

Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, has spoken with his Syrian counterpart, too.

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

General Joe Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the strikes hit targets related to Syria's chemical weapons program - a scientific research center near Damascus, a weapons storage facility west of Homs, and a third location nearby containing a command post and an equipment storage facility.

He says the overnight operation carried out by the United States, France and Britain followed that example.

"Canada supports the decision by the United States, the United Kingdom, and France to take action to degrade the Assad regime's ability to launch chemical weapons attacks against its own people", Trudeau said in a statement Friday.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation representatives are planning a special session to hear from U.S., British and French officials about their military strike against Syria.

The Russian delegation condemned the strikes against Syria as a blatant violation of global conventions and emphasized Russia's support for Syria in the ongoing war.
