Ezekiel 38:1-3 The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-Togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan has never liked the idea of the Kurdish people. He considers them to be terrorists. He vows to take out the “terrorist corridor” along Turkey’s southern border.

See video link below for geography and analysis.

With Operation Euphrates Shield, Turkey crossed the Syrian border and drove a wedge in the area occupied by the Kurds. The plan to remove the Kurds from the region west of the Euphrates River began in earnest in the summer of 2017.

Operation Olive Branch was launched in February 2018. In a little over one month, the Turks now control northwest Syria and the Kurdish stronghold area of Afrin. Remember, this is happening in the country of Syria.

“The symbols of peace and security now wave in Afrin’s city center, not the rags of the terrorist organization. Most of the terrorists tucked their tails between their legs and fled. Our special units and members of the Free Syrian Army are cleaning up the remains of the sword and the traps they left behind.”

“We will now add the full stop, God willing … We will now continue to Manbij, Ain el-Arab, Tal Abyad Ras al-Ain and Qamishli until the terrorist corridor is gone.” -Turkish President Recep Erdogan

Recep Erdogan has every intention of going all the way east into Iraq.

Ezekiel 38:2 “Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog…”

The Bible and historians are consistent. Magog is modern day Russia. For content linking ancient Magog to modern day Russia, clink the link below.

Vladimir Putin was recently reelected to serve again as Russian president. Putin garnered 76% of the vote. His closest rival Alexei Navalny was barred from participating due to alleged embezzlement charges. Also, it should be noted that alleged voter irregularities will be fully investigated.

“The percentage that we have just seen speaks for itself. It’s a mandate which Putin needs for future decisions, and he has a lot of them to make,” Putin Spokesman.

Russia continues to pour military resources into Syria. Sputnik News out of Russia is quoting Twitter. Here is the quote from the article.

Known as one of the most effective jammers in the world, the Russian helicopter-based radio electronic warfare system Rychag-AV is capable of protecting the entire vehicle by “blinding” all enemy warplanes and missiles within several hundred kilometers.

With Erdogan’s reelection in April of 2017, he potentially can remain in power in Turkey until 2029. Putin’s recent election win allows him a second six-year term to remain in power in Russia until 2024. Putin and Erdogan both have political capital with their recent election wins. They are and will continue to spend their capital.

And the military build continues towards Israel. Fulfilled prophecy awaits.

Ezekiel 39:6 I will send fire on Magog and on those who dwell securely in the coastlands, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Trend Update: Turkey’s Operation Olive Branch, February 2018

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 11, 2018 by paulthepoke

Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. “Hamath and Arpad are put to shame, for they have heard bad news; they are disheartened. There is anxiety by the sea, it cannot be calmed.

Arpad: The name means “I will be spread out.” Per Ellicott’s Commentary, the modern-day location is approximately 14 miles north of Aleppo, Syria. The city is effectively on the Turkey border. Scholars believe the modern-day city is Tel Erfad, Syria (Barnes Notes on the Bible).

Ezekiel 38:1-3 The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-Togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

February 2018: President Recep Erdogan of Turkey has launched Operation Olive Branch. Turkey is looking to rid the region of terrorism. Turkey has crossed into northern Syria to do their bidding. The object of the operation is the Kurdish population. Turkey has indicated they prefer the Kurds east of the Euphrates River.

“One of our helicopters was downed just recently. These things will happen, we are in a war. (We) might lose a helicopter. (They) pay a heavy price.”

Erdogan is looking to expand further to the south in Syria. He is not finished in Afrin.

“We want our Syrian brothers and sisters to return to their land, and now we want to do the same in Idlib what we have done in Afrin.”

https://www.rt.com/news/418412-turkish-helicopter-downed-operation/

Turkish fighter jets are being seen all over the Afrin region.

Turkey has at least 3 observation posts west of Aleppo. Two other posts are located south of Aleppo towards Hamah.

Multiple posts on social media have indicated video of Turkish convoys in the Idlib region in and around Saraqib.

Turkey is moving south into Syria towards Israel.

 

Trend Update: Kurds Squeezed in Northwest Syria, July 2017

Posted in Euphrates River, Ezekiel 38-39, Kurds/Medes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 4, 2017 by paulthepoke

1 Chronicles 5:8-9 …and Bela the son of Azaz, son of Shema, son of Joel, who lived in Aroer, as far as Nebo and Baal-meon. He also lived to the east as far as the entrance of the desert this side of the Euphrates, because their livestock had multiplied in the land of Gilead.

The northern part of Syria is back in the news again. This is ancient Azaz. Currently the Kurds are sandwiched by Turkey. It would appear Turkey is trying to squeeze the Kurds west of the Euphrates River. Turkish President Recep Erdogan has made it clear to the Kurds they belong east of the Euphrates River. Erdogan is also upset with President Trump for supporting the Kurds. With Operation Euphrates Shield, Turkey drove a wedge in the area occupied by the Kurds. Turkey crossed the Syrian border to create the wedge.

 

July 3, 2017: It would appear the Free Syrian Army and Turkish forces are uniting against the Kurds. The Kurdish stronghold in the area is Afrin, Syria. Planning has been taking place for the last two months to remove the Kurds from the area.

“At the first stage, we plan to take control the city of Tall Rifaat, as well as the local airbase, and then we plan to begin with the siege of Afrin, which is under the control of Kurdish YPG forces. Our goal is not to enter the territory of Afrin, but rather to clear the territories located near the Turkish border from YPG.” -Anonymous Syrian commander.

“The operation can start at any moment. The Turkish forces are stationed in Marra, Azaz and in the north of Idlib. Only those FSA units which were previously involved in the Euphrates Shield will take part in the upcoming operation. The US-backed FSA militants won’t participate in the fighting in the Afrin area. We don’t trust them, as they can pass information on to the Kurdish self-defense units.” -Anonymous Syrian commander.

Nuri Mehmud of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) has made the following statements.

“Turkey has deployed its military and equipment on the Syrian border near the Azaz and Mare region. This activity is taking place because Turkey is preparing to attack Tel Rifat and Afrin. Turkey wants to establish control over these areas and strengthen its influence there. We intend to protect our territories and repel the attack no matter where it comes from.” -Nuri Mehmud, Kurdish YPG.

The western most Kurds are divided and isolated from their fellow Kurds east of the Euphrates River.

“We don’t accept the Turkish state’s presence or invasion in this region in any form. I want to stress that we don’t recognize their alliances either. Our goal and struggle to liberate the Azaz-Jarablus area will continue,”  YPG Commander Sipan Hemo.

https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201707021055159376-syrian-kurds-to-stop-turkey-advance/

Recent history is repeating itself. As ISIS is being removed across the region, a vacuum is being created. Peace is not taking place with the removal of ISIS. Fighting between different groups occurs to occupy and control the land where ISIS once roamed.
