Punitive US-led strikes on Syria are justified because of the "murderous actions" carried out by the Damascus government, an Israeli official said Saturday.

The Population Immigration and Border Authority in a statement said that the Eritrean and Sudanese detainees will be released throughout the day from Saharonim Prison in Israel's Negev region.

African asylum seekers and Israeli activists protest in central Jerusalem, against their deportation, on April 4, 2018.

The narrowly targeted pre-dawn military operation on Saturday took aim at three alleged chemical weapons facilities.

"The important worldwide message that came from the attack was zero tolerance for the use of non-conventional weapons", Netanyahu said at the start of a cabinet meeting, describing his discussion with May.

"I added that this policy needs to also be expressed in preventing terrorist states and groups from having nuclear abilities", he added.


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

On April 9, seven Iranian personnel were among 14 people killed in an early-morning strike on the T-4 airbase in Syria, with regime allies Iran and Russian Federation blaming Israel for the attack. Israel has not commented on the attack.

"Israel gave full support to President [Donald] Trump's decision to stand against the use and spread of chemical weapons one year ago", he said, adding: "There is no change in Trump's determination and Israel's support in that issue".

Israel's National Security Adviser, Meir Ben Shabbat, also spoke with incoming U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton prior to the attack.

Israeli public radio reported that Western allies had given Israel, which remains technically at war with neighbouring Syria, advance notice of the air strikes.

Hezbollah, like Iran and Russian Federation, is backing Assad in the war.
