  • Led airstrikes on Syria justified: Israeli official

Netanyahu said he told May that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "must understand that when he allows Iran and its proxies to establish a military presence in his country, he endangers Syria as well as the stability of the region".

"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.

Syrian television reported that Syria's air defenses, which are substantial, responded to the attack.

Characterizing the strike as a success, McKenzie says, "As of right now we're not aware of any civilian casualties".

While Russia is being agitated by the coalition attack on Syria, Israel might be the one to pay the price.

A U.N. Security Council diplomat says the council will meet later Saturday at Russia's request.

A USA embassy spokeswoman confirmed to Reuters that Israel had been notified before the strikes, but she provided no further details.

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.

Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, has spoken with his Syrian counterpart, too.

Tensions have been running high between Israel and its arch-foe Iran, a key backer of the Syrian regime which provides military advisors and "volunteer" ground forces to Damascus.

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

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

Israel has mounted air strikes in Syria on a regular basis, targeting suspected weapons shipments to Lebanese Hezbollah.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation representatives are planning a special session to hear from U.S., British and French officials about their military strike against Syria.

Netanyahu had previously expressed his "total support" for the strikes alongside other world leaders.
