BREAKING: After Trump Strikes Syria, Israel Makes BOLD Move

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed his full support for President Donald Trump’s decision to launch nearly five dozen missiles at a Syrian airfield Friday morning in response to a chemical weapons attack.

The airfield is suspected of hosting the planes that dropped chemical weapons on a town in Syrias Idlib providence Tuesday which killed 74 and injured over 550.

“In words and actions President Trump sent a strong and clear response: The use of chemical weapons is unacceptable,” Netanyahu said after Trump’s retaliatory strike.

The Israeli prime minister hopes Trump’s action will send a strong message to Syria, Iran and North Korea that the use of weapons of mass destruction will not be tolerated by the international community.

“Israel fully and unequivocally supports the presidents decision and hopes the clear message will reverberate not only in Damascus but also in Tehran, Pyongyang and other places,” Netanyahu stated.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin also gave praise to the U.S. for their “fitting and appropriate response” to Syria’s continued use of chemical weapons.

“In acting as it has, the United States serves as an example to the entire free world, which must support any step required to bring the atrocities in Syria to an end,” Rivlin said.

Israel’s Channel 2 TV reported that the Israel Defense Force, along with other allies in the region, were notified of the strike by the U.S. ahead of time.

Israel has long warned about “game-changing” chemical weapons from Syria reaching Hezbollah in Lebanon, which is gearing up to wage war against Israel.

Trump’s missile strike against Syria was fully supported by Israel. Former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon blasted the Obama administration for doing nothing when Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad crossed the redline in 2013. He stated that America’s inaction gave Assad the confidence to carry out the chemical weapons attack on Tuesday.

But things have changed dramatically following the U.S. attack on Syria.

“The U.S. attack on Syria delivered an important and necessary message from the entire free world, led by the United States, that it will note tolerate the war crimes of [Syrian President] Bashar Assad’s regime against innocent civilians,” said Israel’s current Defense Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, in a statement Friday morning.
