Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Saturday evening expressed support for US President Donald Trump's decision to attack Syrian targets.

"A year ago, I declared Israel’s full support for President Trump’s decision to take a stand against the use and spread of chemical weapons," Netanyahu said. "President Trump’s resolve and Israel’s support remain unchanged."

"Early this morning, under American leadership, the United States, France and the United Kingdom demonstrated that their commitment is not limited to proclamations of principle.

"It should be clear to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that his reckless efforts to acquire and use weapons of mass destruction, his wanton disregard for international law and his provision of a forward base for Iran and its proxies endanger Syria."

Friday's strike included 8 pre-selected targets. According to Syrian media, three people were injured in an attack on a security facility in Homs.
