"The important worldwide message that came from the attack was zero tolerance for the use of non-conventional weapons", Netanyahu said at the start of a cabinet meeting, describing his discussion with May.

"The United States and its allies have no proof and, without even waiting for the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to take a position, have carried out this military attack", said the foreign ministry in a statement.

Iran warned of "regional consequences" on Saturday following a wave of punitive strikes in Syria by the United States, Britain and France.

They "are responsible for the regional consequences of this adventurist action", it said, condemning a "clear violation of global rules and laws".

"A year ago I gave Israel's total support for (US) President Donald Trump's decision to mobilise against the use of chemical weapons", he said, referring to American strikes against the Syrian regime in April 2017 after a sarin gas attack on a rebel-held town.

It said Friday that after an "functional and intelligence-based evaluation" the military concludes that the "Iranian aircraft was armed with explosives and has been tasked with attack Israeli territory".
