Israel weighs consequences of US-led tripartite attack on Syria

Israel weighs consequences of US-led tripartite attack on Syria

"Last year (US) President Donald Trump said that the use of chemical weapons would violate a red line".

The joint missile strike by the U.S., Britain and France on Saturday came just days after Israeli forces reportedly attacked a Syrian air base. "Israel's support remains unchanged", Netanyahu said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the USA for the joint missile strikes it carried out with the United Kingdom and France that targeted three chemical weapons facilities in Syria. Iran has been regarded by Israel as its arch enemy in the region.

Two Israeli ministers said Sunday that their country will continue to act against the Iranian military presence in Syria.

The United States had Israel's full support as it led the attack on Syria's chemical weapons facilities together with its allies, France and Britain. Syrian government has strongly denied the allegations.

But with negotiations continuing over a deal with Uganda, Israel's Interior Ministry - which has faced court challenges by rights groups over the detentions - issued a statement on Sunday saying it would begin releasing the migrants.

The surgical strikes by the western coalition on Saturday, however, turned out to target only Syria's chemical weapons capabilities, with no intention of destabilizing the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad or diminishing Iran's influence there.

"If it is a multi-phased attack on Syria, we will see an Iranian response against Israel", said Dr. Dina Lisnyansky from the Political Studies Department at Bar Ilan University in Israel.

While Netanyahu came out in support of the operation, some Israeli diplomats are concerned that the attack will pave the way for an American withdrawal from Syria.

Other sources expressed concerns over Russia's reaction to the attack.

"Syria and Russia are fighting a battle not only against terrorism, but also for protecting worldwide law ... based on respect for state sovereignty and the will of their people", Assad said at a meeting with members of Russia's ruling United Russia Party.
