US 'Acted Appropriately' with Syria Strikes

About 4,000 migrants have left Israel for Rwanda and Uganda since 2013 under a voluntary program, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has come under pressure from his right-wing voter base to expel thousands more.

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

"Trump's determination and Israel's support have remained unchanged", he said. The Douma attack killed over 40 people, with hundreds wounded by exposure to chemical agents.

Netanyahu said that it should be "clear to Syrian President Bashar-al Assad that his irresponsible efforts to obtain weapons of mass destruction and its use. and his willingness to allow Iran and its proxies to entrench themselves in Syria" put the country in danger.

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

Netanyahu called on Western powers to take the same approach towards preventing "terrorist states" from acquiring nuclear weapons, a thinly veiled reference to its rival enemy Iran.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu backs the joint airstrikes carried out against Syria in response to a suspected chemical attack. The armed Iranian-backed Shi'ite movement Hezbollah, which has an extensive missile arsenal, last fought a war with Israel in 2006.

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.

Earlier in the day, the United States, the United Kingdom and France launched a massive missile strike at targets in Syria in response to an alleged chemical incident in Douma in Eastern Ghouta, which has already been blamed on Damascus despite the fact that the OPCW probe is only due to start today.
