White House official: Iran was notified of impending strikes in Syria

(CNN) – Iran, along with other countries, were told ahead of time about Tuesday morning's airstrikes in Syria, says a White House official.

"Specifically with a number of countries, including Iran, we indicated that we would be taking action. We obviously didn't say exactly when, or where. We wanted to make sure that no one got in our way," said White House deputy national security adviser Tony Blinken.
