Following targeted airstrikes launched by a coalition of US, UK, and French forces, a statement issued by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office on Saturday offered Israel's support for the action.

In a written statement, Netanyahu said the decision taken by the USA and backed by the United Kingdom and France shows that the commitment of these countries to combat chemical weapons is not limited to the declaration.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends a ceremony marking the annual Israeli Holocaust Remembrance Day at the Yad Vashem World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem, April 12, 2018.

"The important global 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.

Netanyahu warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that his "ceaseless efforts to acquire and use weapons of mass destruction... put Syria in danger".

The premier said he told May that the leading source of instability in the region is Iran, and that Assad needs to understand that when he lets Iran militarily entrench itself and its proxies in Syria, he is endangering Syria and the entire region.

More news: Damascus defiant as Trump orders strikes after Syria chemical attack

"Syria and Russia are fighting a battle not only against terrorism, but also for protecting worldwide law ... based on respect for state sovereignty and the will of their people", Assad said at a meeting with members of Russia's ruling United Russia Party. Israel has not commented on the attack.

Two Israeli ministers said Sunday that their country will continue to act against the Iranian military presence in Syria.

"A year ago, I declared Israel's full support for @POTUS Trump's decision to take a stand against the use and spread of chemical weapons", he said.

Israel's National Security Adviser, Meir Ben Shabbat, also spoke with incoming U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton prior to the attack.

Hezbollah, like Iran and Russian Federation, is backing Assad in the war.
