Fox News quoting Western sources said an Iranian military base in Syria was the target of the attack

An Israeli army spokesman, Avichay Adraee, said on Twitter that Israel was "acting against Iranian targets inside Syria", a rare admission by an Israeli official.

Oil in NY extended gains above $71 a barrel on speculation that "the conflict between Iran and Israel could eventually threaten supply across the Middle East", Takayuki Nogami, chief economist at state-backed Japan Oil, Gas & Metals National Corp., said by phone from Tokyo.

Israel has vowed to prevent Iran from entrenching itself there and has targeted, or is believed to have targeted, Iranian assets and positions, increasingly in recent months.

In February, Israel accused Iranian forces at the T-4 base in central Syria of sending a drone into Israeli territory.

The strikes have prompted threats of retaliation from Tehran, and Israel has girded for a response, ordering bomb shelters open in the Golan.

Iran has also been trying to boost its presence in Syria.

In addition, during the eight-year war in Syria, Israel's military has responded to numerous spillovers of fire from the internal fighting near the disputed border in the Golan Heights by attacking Assad's army positions.

Russia's foreign ministry said on Tuesday it was "deeply disappointed" by Trump's announcement that the United States would pull out of the Iran deal, while Netanyahu strongly supported the USA president's "bold" move. Amid the reports of an immanent Iranian attack, the military revealed that it had deployed additional batteries for Israel's Iron Dome missile defence shield in the north, while the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv prohibited USA government employees from traveling to the Golan Heights without prior authorization. The United Nations considers it Israeli-occupied Syrian territory. Ties with Iran have since somewhat recovered, and Hamas is believed to again get funding from Iran. Many Iraqis fear escalating tensions between the US and Iran will destabilize Iraq just as the country is starting to recover.

Last week, he unveiled what he said was a cache of Iranian documents proving it had not ended its efforts to build a nuclear weapon, in defiance of the deal.

"The meetings between us are always important and this one is especially so", Netanyahu said ahead of his departure. "It will be a violent response", said Jafar Husseini of Iraq's Hezbollah brigades.

Iran is an ally of Mr Assad and has deployed hundreds of troops to Syria. "The IDF is prepared and ready for a wide variety of scenarios and sees the event in the severity", IDF tweeted an hour after Israel was attacked.

They would "think together how we can act correctly in the region, how we can remove the threats that exist in the region in a responsible and reasonable way".
