Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu Voices Support for Military Strikes in Syria

Israel: Iran drone intercepted in Feb was Strike Assignment

"Last year, [US] President [Donald] Trump made it clear that using chemical weapons crossed a red line". "This morning the United States, France and the United Kingdom showed that their commitment is not limited to declarations of principles", he added in a statement.

Israel has neither confirmed or denied the strike, but the T4 air base in Syria's central province of Homs is believed to be where Iran launched a drone that infiltrated Israeli airspace two months ago.

Prime Minister Netanyahu, in addition to several other high-ranking Israeli officials, expressed approval of the allied strike on Syrian targets following the most recent chemical attack in the war torn nation.

Military plane crashes in Algiers:257 reported dead
Witnesses who had been working in nearby fields told AFP that the plane had burst into flames before it hit the ground. More than 200 people are believed dead after an Algerian military plane crashed near a major base.

Netanyahu also called on Western powers to take the same approach toward preventing "terrorist states" from acquiring nuclear weapons, referring to Israel's main enemy Iran.

Netanyahu warned that the Syrian government is endangering itself by giving Iran and its proxies a "forward base".

Israel's military asserts an unmanned Iranian aircraft shot down in February following infiltrating its air-space was armed with explosives and onto a mission to assault Israel.

President Donald Trump announced late Friday that a joint US-British-French operation had been launched on Syria, targeting the "criminal" regime of Bashar al-Assad and saying an alleged chemical attack had marked a "significant escalation".

China's March trade balance weakens
China exported US$137.8 billion worth of high-tech products in the first quarter, up 20.5% on-year. Its imports from the U.S. rose 8.9 percent in the quarter and 3.2 percent in March.

Lt. Col. Sarit Zehavi, a former Israeli military intelligence officer and founder of the Alma Research and Education Center on Israel's Security Challenges on its Northern Borders, said Israel has invested a lot of efforts to prevent the Syria-Israeli conflict from overlapping with the internal conflict in the Arab country.

Iran warned of "regional consequences" on Saturday following a wave of punitive strikes in Syria by the United States, Britain and France.

A day earlier, just hours after the Western coalition struck the military targets in Syria, the Israeli army released a statement saying the drone was an armed one meant to carry out an attack in Israel. "The attack will allow the Americans to say "we did what was needed" and leave Syria", an Israeli source said, according to a Hadashot news report.

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.

In response, Russia's foreign ministry said: "Smart missiles should fly towards terrorists, not towards the lawful government". French President Emmanuel Macron will reportedly decide on a response in the coming days.
