Israeli defence chiefs warn Iran, Syria after air strike

But that Israeli officials have in the past admitted to Israel hitting weapons shipments believed to be bound for Hezbollah, an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. He said that during the terrorist leader's visit to Syria, he likely secured a deal in which Assad would either "transfer the facility to Hezbollah or at least supply weapons to Hezbollah".

The attack on a Syrian military facility early Thursday morning, attributed to Israel, is a sign that Israel will enforce its major "red lines" with Syria to defend itself, a former Israeli national security adviser said Thursday.

But in 2016, a UN-led investigative body said the Syrian government was behind at leat three chemical attacks in northern Syria in the previous two years.

The United States has accused the SSRC of developing the sarin gas weapon allegedly used in a chemical attack on the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhun in April, which left dozens dead.

"Now it's important to keep the escalation in check and to prepare for a Syrian-Iranian-Hizbollah response and even opposition from Russian Federation", tweeted Mr Yadlin, who currently serves at the executive director of Tel Aviv University's Institute for National Security Studies.

"The factory that was targeted in Masyaf produces the chemical weapons and barrel bombs that have killed thousands of Syrian civilians", Amos Yadlin, a former head of Israeli military intelligence, said in a tweet.

The Syrian army condemned Israel's move. "They were after one of the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Centre bases - not a simple weapons convoy".

Gen. (res.) Gadi Shamni on Thursday warned that Israel "must do everything to prevent Iran from getting a better stronghold than that which it already has on Syria".

Amidror added that the attack that Israel carried out was consistent with Israel's defensive posture regarding Syria and that the overnight attack marked "another level" of response.
