"The important worldwide message that came from the attack was zero tolerance for the use of non-conventional weapons", Netanyahu said at the start of a cabinet meeting, describing his discussion with May. We thank them both.

They "are responsible for the regional consequences of this adventurist action", it said, condemning a "clear violation of worldwide rules and laws". The armed Iranian-backed Shi'ite movement Hezbollah, which has an extensive missile arsenal, last fought a war with Israel in 2006.

"Israel fully supports (U.S.) President Trump's decision to act against the use of chemical weapons in Syria, and Israel welcomes the joining of British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macaron in this action", Netanyahu told his ministers during the weekly cabinet meeting.

The directive was issued after several government officials lauded the allies' actions, including Housing Minister Yoav Galant, who called the strike "an important signal to the axis of evil - Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah", reported Channel 10.


Syria, Iran and Russian Federation say Israel was behind an air strike on a Syrian air base on Monday that killed seven Iranian military personnel, something Israel has neither confirmed nor denied. "Tonight, under American leadership, the United States, France and the United Kingdom enforced that line", another Israeli official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has expressed his support for punitive strikes carried out by the US, Britain and France against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

Friday's missile strike was in response to a chemical weapons attack on a rebel-held suburb of Damascus that the Syrian government is widely believed to be behind.

The three countries had carried out a wave of pre-dawn missile strikes, hitting targets near Damascus and in Homs province, Western officials said.
