JERUSALEM (AP) Israel's prime minister is warning the warring parties in Syria against any attempt to heat up tensions with Israel.

Benjamin Netanyahu spoke hours after Israel carried out a series of airstrikes in Syria in response to a cross-border missile attack Sunday that killed an Israeli teenager.

Speaking to members of his Likud Party Monday, Netanyahu said Israel operated with "great force" against Syrian targets. "If needed," he said, Israel will use additional force.

Netanyahu says Israel will continue to "forcefully hurt" anyone who tries to attack it.
