The images obtained by Israel's Channel 10 depicted the base before and after the airstrike, revealing "surgical precision" and the attack's limited scope.

Israel insists that it does not support any of the parties to the Syrian conflict.

"No matter the price, we will not allow a noose to form around us", Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Israel Radio over the weekend.

Americans are concerned about the prospects that future air attacks of Israel will be met with new defenses.

"Today I heard the remarks made by the Iranian Foreign Minister who accused Israel of breaking global law". "The Israeli regime's aggression against Syria is a breach of that country's national sovereignty and territorial integrity and contradicts all worldwide regulations and principles".

A separate report said that the target of the air strike was an Iranian drone base.

Russia's ambassador to Israel on Wednesday played down tensions between the countries over Israeli attacks in Syria, saying they were not the reason for Moscow's proposed supply of an advanced air defense system to Damascus.

Israel did not initially comment on the attack.

Votel is also expected to discuss Washington's possible withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran, the source said.

U.S. President Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened to pull the U.S. out of the 2015 nuclear deal and re-impose economic sanctions on Iran.

Western officials have accused Iran of using seemingly civilian airlines as fronts for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps to conduct military transport missions to Syria from Tehran's Mehrabad Airport.

"We have put a number of options for ourselves, and those options are ready", Zarif said, adding that the options include "resuming at a much greater speed our nuclear activities".
