Iran drone intercepted in Feb was Strike Assignment

Netanyahu expressed his hope that Syrian President Assad would acknowledge 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". 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.

Syria, Iran and Russian Federation say Israel was behind an air strike on a Syrian air base on Monday that killed seven Iranian military personnel, something Israel has neither confirmed nor denied.

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.

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

Israel regularly targets military sites inside Syria, saying it will prevent Iran and the Iran-allied Hezbollah group from using Syria as a base to threaten the Jewish state. The directive was issued after several government officials lauded the allies' actions, including Housing Minister Yoav Galant, who called the strike "an important signal to the axis of evil - Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah", reported Channel 10.
