BREAKING: Israel Launches Biggest Airstrikes In Syria Since 1982



There is major news out of the Middle East today that there has apparently been a major escalation in Syria and Northern Israel.  The situation is still very fluid, but here is what we know:

1. A sophisticated Iranian UAV entered Northern Israel and was shot down by an Israeli Apache helicopter.  Footage of the helicopter attack has already reached YouTube:


2. In response to the incursion, an Israeli F-16 destroyed the drone's control station.

3. On the return flight, the F-16 was shot down by Syrian air defenses and crashed in Northern Israel, east of Haifa.  Both pilots ejected, but were injured, one of them critically.  This marks the first time an Israeli F-16 has been shot down, and the first time any manned Israeli aircraft was shot down in the Syrian conflict.



4. Israel responded to the downing of their warplane with the largest airstrikes in Syria since 1982—over 35 years ago.  Numerous air defenses and military facilities have been targeted, including eight facilities in or in the vicinity of Damascus.

5. Hezbollah is calling the downing of the F-16 a strategic game-changer and Russia, in no uncertain terms, is telling Israel to back off and restrain itself.

In my most recent article I mentioned the December 2017 United Nations damage assessment of the Damascus metropolitan area and I want to share that again, because the assessment is startling—showing a significant increase in Damascus' destruction in just a year and a half:


The area shown above is directly adjacent to the old city and downtown areas of Damascus, and demonstrates, in my humble opinion, that the tragic fulfillment of Isaiah 17:1 is nigh at hand.  At some point in the near future, Damascus proper will be destroyed in just one night:

A prophecy against Damascus: 'See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins... At evening, behold, terror! Before the morning, they are no more. This is the portion of those who plunder us, and the lot of those who rob us.'
- Isaiah 17:1; 14


All of this is happening as Prime Minister Netanyahu acknowledges that he might be indicted next week on corruption charges.  If Netanyahu is forced out this year, it isn't any sort of stretch to see a liberal Zionist Union leader take the helm and quickly capitulate to a final status agreement with "Palestine".

  1. Not only is Isaiah 17 and Eze 38/39 getting closer, but so are the agreements with a consortium that includes Russia that are necessary for the magog coalition to protect its spoil

    1. I think it would take some time for the indictment scenario to play out. Netanyahu might even stay in office for awhile while the proceedings play out. After that there would be (I assume) a special election (if Netanyahu resigns and/or is forced out) and likely someone from Likud (center-right) or the Zionist Union (liberal) would replace him.
