Syria strikes an "important signal" to Iran and Hezbollah -Israeli minister

Hezbollah Says Israeli Strike on Syria 'Mistake'

Hezbollah's leader Sunday said that the USA -led strikes on Syria over the weekend will "complicate" the possibility of reaching a political solution in Syria.

The strikes carried out by the US, France, and United Kingdom were a punitive response to alleged chemical weapons attacks by the Assad regime that President Donald Trump branded the "crimes of a monster".

"Syria continues to engage in and provide a base for murderous actions, including those of Iran, that put its territory, its forces and its leadership at risk", the official said.

"This is the first time in 7 years the Israelis have deliberately killed Iranian revolutionary guards in the airport", Nassrallah said. Asked how much warning Israel had received, the official told Reuters: "Between 12 and 24 hours, I believe".

A USA embassy spokeswoman confirmed to Reuters that Israel had been notified before the strikes, but she provided no further details.


Iran's involvement in Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad has alarmed Israel, which has said it would counter any threat.

Seven Iranian personnel were killed in the strike on the T-4 air base in Syria, but Tehran had not specified which units the fighters belonged to.

Hezbollah, which last fought a major war with Israel in 2006, would not open a new front against its arch-foe from Lebanon, he said.

Netanyahu said Israel would not allow Iran to establish itself in Syria, according to his office.

Israel has mounted air strikes in Syria on a regular basis, targeting suspected weapons shipments to Hezbollah.
