The U.S. missile strike on a Syrian air base Friday was widely welcomed as a response to this week's chemical weapons attack, but condemned by Syria's government and its allies Russia and Iran, which said the move would complicate efforts to fight terrorism.Syrian President Bashar Assad's office denounced the U.S. strike as "reckless, irresponsible behavior". The Syrian military called the attack a "blatant aggression" that would undermine Syria's "fight against terrorism". The British government said it was informed in advance about the U.S. missile strikes, and firmly supports the American action.Italy said the U.S. strikes on Syria were "proportionate" given the "war crimes" committed by the Assad government in using chemical weapons against its own people. It said the U.S. strikes would serve as a deterrent for any possible future chemical attacks. President Reuven Rivlin said the U.S. strike on Syria was an "appropriate response" to the "unthinkable brutality" of the chemical attack.
