Netanyahu Expresses Support For Coalition Strike On Syria
Written by TPS on April 14, 2018
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu issued a statement on Saturday night, following the Jewish Sabbath, expressing support for the joint United States, British and French strike on targets in Syria overnight Friday in the wake of the regime’s use of chemical weapons.
“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. 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,” Netanyahu said.
“It should be clear to President 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,” the prime minister added.
