Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday Israel's airstrikes against Iranian targets in Syria were "appropriate" because the Islamic Republic had "crossed a red line" by firing rockets at Israeli-occupied territory for the first time in the most extensive military exchange ever between the two adversaries.Israel said it attacked nearly all of Iran's military infrastructure in Syria Thursday in what was the heaviest Israeli barrage in Syria since the 2011 start of the civil war in which Iranians, allied Shiite militias and Russian troops have deployed in support of President Bashar Assad.The Syrian Army Command said Israel's attack killed three people and injured two others.British Prime Minister Theresa May told Netanyahu in a phone call that Britain supports Israel's right to defend itself against Iranian aggression.Expectations of a regional flare-up, amid warnings from Israel that it was determined to prevent any Iranian military entrenchment in Syria, were stoked by U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement Tuesday about the withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.Israel regards Iran as its biggest threat and has repeatedly targeted Iranian forces and allied militia in Syria.
