In rare move, Israel announces attack on Iran in Syria
American Thinker ^ | 01/21/2019 | Rick Moran

The undeclared war between Israel and Iran is heating up as, in a nearly unprecedented move, the Israeli government announced it had struck Iranian targets in Syria.

Iranian troops belong to the Quds Force were hit along with targets near the Damascus airport.

We have started striking Iranian Quds targets in Syrian territory. We warn the Syrian Armed Forces against attempting to harm Israeli forces or territory.

The Quds Force is an elite unit of Iran's Revolutionary Guards that operates almost exclusively on foreign soil. Iran deployed the Quds Force to work closely with the Lebanese terrorist group Hezb'allah, whose militia has made a decisive difference in the Syrian civil war.

Despite the winding down of the civil war, Iran and their Hezb'allah allies have not withdrawn and are, in fact, building permanent bases from which most analysts believe they intend to strike Israel in the future.

Fox News:

Until now Israel largely has refrained from public admissions of its covert military operations in neighboring Syria to avoid large-scale involvement in the eight-year civil war.

The military’s statement was issued hours after Israeli missile defenses intercepted an incoming missile over the Golan Heights in the wake of rare daylight air raid near the Damascus International Airport.

The Israeli military initially had declined to comment on the airstrike, though it said a rocket fired at the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights was intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome defense system.

Israeli warplanes have used Lebanon’s airspace recently to strike deep inside Syria, including attacking a warehouse near Damascus International Airport earlier this month, according to Syrian state media.

The Syrian military said Israel carried out intensive airstrikes with successive waves of guided missiles.

Reason #1 why we don’t need troops in Syria: ISRAEL.

When struggling with a serpent, do not give it the opportunity to either strike, as a rattlesnake, or seize you up in its coil, as a python.

If that means a preemptive blast from a shotgun, or the solid stroke of an axe, then do it quickly and before the snake can act.

Iran figures prominently in end times prophecy as well as Israel. We live in interesting times internationally as well as nationally.

There will be actual “peace” for a bit as the end times start rolling out....then all Hell really breaks loose on Earth...what we have now is nothing compared to the actual end times....not to say they can’t still happen in the next decade or two....modern times allows for very fast large scale changes.

“The Quds Force is an elite unit of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards...”

After Saddam Hussein’s “elite” army units were brushed aside like a bunch of transgender scouts, I came to the conclusion that “elite” in the Moslem world means something akin to “knows enough not to wipe one’s ass without clean toilet paper.”

Israel will wallop these guys more and more over time.

Yes indeed. Time for an Ezekiel 38 ping methinks.

Ezekiel 38 King James Version (KJV)

1 And the Word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

3 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

10 Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:

11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord God; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?

15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:

16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

17 Thus saith the Lord God; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?

18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face.

19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;

20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.

21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.

22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord.

I am aware of it. Yes, Isaiah 17:1 could very well happen before our eyes.

Notice, none of the Jeremiah 48-49, Isaiah 15-17 nations are in the Ezekiel 38 coalition. It is most likely that a psalm 83/Isaiah 17 event will occur prior to Ezekiel 38...with Israel becoming a pariah in world view

Not Psalm 83. That has already happened. The countries that wanted to wipe Israel off the map, the immediate neighbors of Israel, attacked a few times and have now given up.

Now we have Damascus becoming uninhabitable in the future, and the three major and two minor nations coming to “take a spoil”—i.e., the oil and gas that everyone is now desperate for.

Amir hinted last night at some weapons that he thought it better not to mention. You have to wonder about that one.
