The official said that Israel received the warning between 12 and 24 hours before the attack was carried out. "President Trump's determination and Israel's support have remained unchanged".

Iran and Israel are arch enemies, as the Jewish state views Iran's regional and nuclear ambitions as an existential threat.

Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, says: "None of our aircraft or missiles involved in this operation were successfully engaged by Syrian air defenses".

"A short time ago, I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad", Trump said in a primetime televised address to the nation. In a statement released ahead of a press conference in Kampala, State Minister for Relief, Disaster Preparedness and Refugees Musa Ecweru confirmed his country was in talks with Jerusalem to accept several hundred refugees deported from Israel. Syrian government has strongly denied the allegations. Hezbollah is an anti-Israel militant organization in Lebanon. The coalition strikes reportedly caused heavy damage to Syria's chemical weapons infrastructure.

Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, says the USA -led airstrikes against Syria has been "a very serious blow".
