June 2017: This is the pattern that has been repeatedly observed in the Middle East. ISIS has been surrounded and removed from a geographic area or location. The big picture shows ISIS surrounded on all sides in Iraq and Syria.

We will start in Aleppo, Syria and move east.

Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. “Hamath and Arpad are put to shame…

Per Ellicott’s Commentary, the modern day location of Arpad is approximately 14 miles north of Aleppo, Syria. This is where the fighting started, north of modern day Aleppo or what is ancient Arpad. ISIS has been pushed out of the city of Aleppo to the east. The last ISIS controlled area is in Maskanah. Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) elite Tiger Forces have surrounded ISIS on the north and west. ISIS is covered by Lake Assad on the east.

ISIS was surrounded and removed from the Euphrates/Tabqa Dam east of Aleppo on the Euphrates River. The link below provides the recent history of the ISIS capture of the Euphrates/Tabqa Dam and their removal.

From the Euphrates/Tabqa Dam, Operation Euphrates Wrath is moving east down river about 30 miles to Raqqa, Syria. Raqqa is the city ISIS has claimed as its capital. Leaflets from US and Kurdish forces have been dropped in Raqqa, Syria since April 2017 telling ISIS to surrender.

“The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have given instructions to the citizens of Raqqa to vacate,” Colonel Ryan Dillon, a U.S. military spokesman located in Baghdad. Per Colonel Dillon, 200,000 people have taken the warning seriously and left Raqqa. Citizens have gone to refugee tent camps.

Keep in mind, Raqqa is located on the north side of the Euphrates River. Bridges into Raqqa from the south over the Euphrates have been taken out. “The SDF is poised around Raqqa. They are within 3 kilometers (1.8 miles) from the north and the east, and are about 10 kilometers (6 miles) from the city to the west,” Colonel Ryan Dillon.

“The sh*t is about to go down in Raqqa. I would expect to see the assault begin in the coming days.” -anonymous Pentagon official

The United States has begun giving small arms and anti-tank weapons to Kurdish forces.

 

ISIS is surrounded west of Mosul, Iraq in Tal Afar.

ISIS is surrounded southeast of Mosul, Iraq near Kirkuk where oil fields are located.

 

ISIS is all but done in western Mosul, Iraq or what is ancient Nineveh. See the prophets Jonah and Nahum for details regarding ancient Nineveh. See the link below regarding the recent history of ancient Nineveh or modern day Mosul, Iraq.

There are an estimated 1,000 ISIS jihadi left in Mosul. They are limited to approximately 6 square miles. ISIS occupies three territories including the old city. Up to 150,000 civilians also live in these areas. And there is nowhere to go.

The donut hole is shrinking all across the Middle East and war rages on for now…

Trend Update: Operation Euphrates Wrath Moves East, May 2017

Posted in Euphrates River, Kurds/Medes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2017 by paulthepoke

Joshua 1:3-4 Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you, just as I spoke to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon, even as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and as far as the Great Sea toward the setting of the sun will be your territory.

The Euphrates River is a significant geographical landmark in the Bible. The text states the Euphrates River will be the eastern border of a future nation Israel. The Bible also states this river will dry up and allow the kings of the east to cross west towards Armageddon in Revelation 16:12. When today’s current events focus on the Euphrates River, we should pay attention. The Euphrates River matters to God and His chosen people, Israel.

May 23, 2017: Operation Euphrates Wrath is moving east from the Euphrates/Tabqa Dam towards Raqqa, Syria. Raqqa has been proclaimed as the de facto capital by ISIS. But over the past few months, leaflets from US and Kurdish forces have been dropped in Raqqa, Syria telling ISIS to surrender. ISIS is taking the leaflets seriously. They have been moving their capital from Raqqa to Deir ez-Zur, Syria. Deir ez-Zur is about 90 miles southeast from Raqqa down the Euphrates River to the southeast.

Supply routes to Raqqa, Syria have been cut off by the Kurds (Syrian Democratic Forces/SDF). Raqqa is located on the north bank of the Euphrates River. There are two bridges that cross the Euphrates River into Raqqa, Syria. Both of those bridges have been destroyed.

“Reliable sources confirmed to the Observatory that the operation to target the two main bridges, and other bridges around Raqqa came as attempts to prevent the Islamic State from bringing military reinforcements to the city of Raqqa.”  -United Kingdom based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights
