Israel Concerned Syria Strikes Could Harm Its Security

A survivor of a Syrian gas attack in 2013 now living in the U.S.as a refugee thanked President Donald Trump on Saturday for "showing true leadership and bravery" in Friday's strike on Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons operations.

He said there were no known civilian casualties, but noted Syria had fired about 40 unguided surface-to-air missiles, most of which did not launch until after the allied strike was over.

President Donald Trump has warned Syria's government the U.S. is "locked and loaded" to strike again if it carries out new chemical attacks.

"These are not actions of a man, ' Trump said".

The warning came after the US, UK and France struck three Syrian sites in response to a suspected deadly chemical attack in the town of Douma a week ago.

Israel is anxious that this will allow Iran, which along with Russian Federation is a staunch ally of the ruling regime of Bashar al-Assad, to undertake a military buildup in Syria that will threaten Israel's security.

"Last night, USA and allied forces launched precision air strikes against the Syrian regime in response to its use of chemical weapons against innocent civilians".

Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg tweeted a message of support and said those who use chemical weapons "must be held accountable".

The action came amid widespread speculation that Trump will remove Justice officials overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.

A group of Russian politicians has met with Syrian President Bashar Assad, whose mood they describe as good a day after Western airstrikes.

On Saturday, McKenzie said the three allies' ships and aircraft in the Red Sea, northern Arabian Gulf and the eastern Mediterranean launched 105 missiles and hit all of their targets at around 4 a.m.

Everyone needs to stop congratulating themselves over the air strikes in Syria, says Al Jazeera's Senior Political Analyst, Marwan Bishara.

Most of the weapons rained down on the Barzah Research and Development Center, the "heart" of the chemical weapon program, located in the greater Damascus area.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has backed the air strikes as a "necessary and appropriate" action to warn Syria against further use of chemical weapons.

"Important infrastructure was destroyed, which will result in a setback for the Syrian regime".

"The Syrian regime knew full well what it was doing", he said. No casualties have been reported.

Although details were not given reports show that manned aircraft as well as naval forces were used in the airstrikes.
