United States calls Syria strikes a success; Russia, Iran condemn attack

Israel said its "combat helicopters prevented the attack Iran had hoped to carry out in Israeli territory".

The messages were sent hours after the USA and its European allies attacked targets in Syria.

According to the newspaper, the Israeli army has deployed the Iron Dome missile defence system in anticipation of any retaliatory strike.

Washington claims that the attack was a response to an alleged chemical weapon attack near Damascus.

An unmanned Iranian aircraft shot down in February after infiltrating Israeli airspace was armed with explosives and on a mission to attack the Jewish state, Israel's military said Saturday.

Israel has carried out dozens of strikes against what're believed to function as convoys of advanced weapons destined for Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed Lebanese organization from Syria.

They have said a roughly 20-year prison term for Atilla would be appropriate.

Assad, who has denied ever using chemical weapons against his opponents, responded to the strikes with a defiant vow. Hadash party activists rally outside the US Consulate in Haifa against the US airstrikes in Syria on April 14, 2018.

The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned the Israeli ambassador to Moscow on Tuesday for clarification about the strike against the T4 Airbase.

"This aggression is created to compensate for the defeat of the terrorists" in Eastern Ghouta, an area recently recaptured by Syrian government forces, Iran's foreign ministry said.

In a news conference Friday evening, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the USA -led coalition used double the number of weapons as last year's strike, which involved 58 US missiles and was also in response to the use of chemical weapons by Assad's military. Russia's initial fear may have been that Israel was acting on behalf of the U.S.to punish Assad for his chlorine and sarin gas attack, and outing Israel and warning the US was about Russian Federation establishing its own red line with regard to the American, rather than Israeli, actions in Syria.

"Early this morning, under American leadership, the United States, France and the United Kingdom demonstrated that their commitment is not limited to proclamations of principle", Netanyahu said in a written statement. The US blames the attack on the government of Syria.

Iran's involvement in Syria in support of Assad has alarmed Israel, which has said it will counter any threat.

The Syrian government has strongly denied the allegations.

Since the chemical gas attack on Douma, the regime in Tehran has been quiet.
