Israel on board if military offensive launched against Syria

Mr Netanyahu commented on the attack at the opening of Israel's annual Holocaust commemorations, saying: "The events of the last days teach that standing up to evil and aggression is a mission that is incumbent upon every generation," adding that "we saw the Syrian children who were slaughtered with chemical weapons.
