Iranian drone Israel shot down was armed: IDF

Khamenei has harshly responded to the Syrian operation of the West Coalition, APA reports.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry has also lashed out at the Western states that had conducted a joint massive missile strike on targets in Syria and warned of "regional consequences".

Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian military's General Staff says Saturday's strike hasn't caused any casualties and Syrian military facilities targeted by the U.S., Britain and France have suffered only minor damage.

The assessment notes eight chlorine attacks ahead of the "major attack" on Douma and 44 allegations of chemical weapons use in Syria over the past year.

Britain and France joined the United States in the strikes in a coordinated operation that was meant to show Western resolve in the face of what the leaders of the three nations called persistent violations of global law.

"This is the first time as prime minister that I have had to take the decision to commit our armed forces in combat - and it is not a decision I have taken lightly", she said.

Attacking Syria is a crime.

In recent days the administration had weighed how to intensify the attack without collapsing the Assad regime or drawing Russian Federation or Iran further into the fight.


US President Donald Trump, along with British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron authorised precision air-launched cruise missile strikes against Syria on Saturday to degrade its chemical weapons capability, saying there was no alternative to military action.

Nasrallah echoed Syrian and Russian government denials that President Bashar al-Assad's forces were behind the attack. "If they give excuses to Iran, Tel Aviv and Haifa will be destroyed", cleric Ali Shirazi said on Thursday according to the semi-official Fars news agency.

"Let them make no mistake now: they are now [fighting] face to face with the Islamic Republic in Iran", he said.

Photo released by Iranian media reportedly show the T-4 air base in central Syria after a missile barrage Monday. "This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very bad regime", he added.

He added that the US military is not aware of any civilian deaths.

The drone had apparently entered from Syrian territory into Israeli airspace for 90 seconds before Israel shot it down. The first air strike ordered by Trump occurred in April past year.

Khamenei said on Twitter early Saturday the US and its allies were committing a crime.

It was the second strike that Trump has authorized in response to such an attack, after ordering a strike on a Syrian air base a year ago following a chemical weapons attack that also left dozens of people dead.
