Punitive US-led strikes on Syria are justified because of the "murderous actions" carried out by the Damascus government, an Israeli official said Saturday. "Israel welcomes the participation of British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emanuel Macron in this action", Netanyahu said at the beginning of his weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday.

"Canada supports the decision by the United States, the United Kingdom, and France to take action to degrade the Assad regime's ability to launch chemical weapons attacks against its own people", Trudeau said in a statement Friday.

"It should be clear to President Assad that his reckless efforts to acquire and use weapons of mass destruction, his wanton disregard for worldwide law and his provision of a forward base for Iran and its proxies endanger Syria", the statement also said.

The U.S., U.K., and France jointly launched airstrikes on the Assad regime's alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria earlier on Saturday.

Israel on Saturday lauded the joint airstrikes on Syria by the U.S., Britain and France as an "appropriate" response to the alleged gas attack in Syria.

Asked how much advance warning Israel had received, an unnamed official told Reuters, "Between 12 and 24 hours, I believe".

Trump's new national security adviser, John Bolton, was according to the Haaretz daily in contact with his Israeli counterpart Meir Ben Shabbat in the days ahead of the strike.

Military action in Syria is a success - UK, US and France say
The assault came despite the lack of a definitive independent finding that chemical weapons were used or who had deployed them. "This is hooliganism in global relations, and not minor hooliganism, given that we're talking about major nuclear powers".

FBI sought Trump-Cohen communications on 'Access Hollywood'
The news indicates that investigators are focused on finding out more about the nature of Cohen's role during the 2016 campaign. He has called the raids "inappropriate and unnecessary" and said prosecutors improperly obtained privileged information.

After some Israeli lawmakers came out in support of the missile strikes, Netanyahu's office issued a directive of silence.

Tensions have been running high between Israel and its arch-foe Iran, a key backer of the Syrian regime which provides military advisors and "volunteer" ground forces to Damascus. "Due to the attack, Russian Federation will expedite its advanced weapons system sales to the Syrians, which will harm the IDF's freedom of action", they warned.

"This aggression is created to compensate for the defeat of the terrorists" in Eastern Ghouta, an area recently recaptured by Syrian government forces, Iran's foreign ministry said.

"A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now under way".

"A perfectly executed strike last night".

No additional strikes are now planned, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters.
