November 18, 2019: Four missiles were launched from Syria into Israel. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) indicated that none of the missiles reached Israel. One day later…

November 19, 2019: Israel has responded with a large scale attack on Iranian and Syrian targets in and around Damascus, Syria.

According to a report from The Times of Israel and satellite photos from ImageSat International, Iranian targets at the Damascus International Airport and the al-Mazzeh Airport were identified and struck. Both of these sites were believed to be occupied by the Iranian Quds Force. Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem. It means “Holy One”.

Other targets during the intervention included dozens of other Quds Force locations along with Syrian military hardware. Syrian air defenses were also destroyed in the counter attack.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (British monitored) stated Quds Force arms depots in the Damascus suburbs of Kisweh and Qudsaya were obliterated.

“Our message to the leaders of Iranian is simple: You are not immune anymore. Wherever you send your octopus arms, we will hack them off.” -Naftali Bennett, Israeli Defense Minister

“I have made clear that any who attack us, we will attack them. That is what we did tonight toward military targets of the Iranian Quds Force and Syrian military targets.” -Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

November 20, 2019: Meanwhile back in the home country of Iran… The internet has been cut off to the population for going on the fourth day. There is no international access to the world for the people of Iran.

Go to Twitter and search #IranProtests. Warning! The pictures and video under this hashtag are not for the faint of heart.

Economic sanctions are taking their toll in Iran. The government is desperate for money. Gasoline is being rationed and as a result prices have spiked from 50-300%. People are struggling to buy basic goods. The citizens have taken to the streets of over 100 cities across Iran to protest.

The government has responded with live ammunition fire on the citizens. Over 1,000 people have been arrested. At least 106 have been killed along with hundreds of other injuries. Some estimates are doubled with over 200 dead. Numbers are difficult to assess due to a lack of communication inside the country. Journalists are not allowed entry into Iran at this time. See details below from Amnesty International.

The following is from DW News out of Germany. This is a three minute story summarizing current happenings of the last five days in Iran.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made the following observation. He indicated these protests were not from the citizens of Iran.

“Friends and enemies should know we have pushed the enemy back in the military, political and security war arena. This work of these days has been security work, not from the people.” -Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

2,600 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel stated Russia, Iran, and Turkey would invade Israel for economic reasons. They want to steal their natural resources.

Ezekiel 38:12-13 to seize spoil and carry off plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and the people who were gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell at the center of the earth. Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all its leaders will say to you, ‘Have you come to seize spoil? Have you assembled your hosts to carry off plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to seize great spoil?’

Two witnesses say there will come a time when the LORD has #JiHadEnough…

Zephaniah 2:4-5 For Gaza shall be deserted, and Ashkelon shall become a desolation; Ashdod’s people shall be driven out at noon, and Ekron shall be uprooted. Woe to you inhabitants of the seacoast, you nation of the Cherethites! The word of the LORD is against you, O Canaan, land of the Philistines; and I will destroy you until no inhabitant is left.

Ezekiel 25:15-17 Thus says the Lord God, “Because the Philistines have acted in revenge and have taken vengeance with scorn of soul to destroy with everlasting enmity,” therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will stretch out My hand against the Philistines, even cut off the Cherethites and destroy the remnant of the seacoast. I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes; and they will know that I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance on them.”

Hamas bears the responsibility not only for its own attacks and actions but also for the actions of Islamic Jihad, and it is paying a very heavy price for this. I ask that Israeli citizens strictly adhere to Home Front Command instructions; these instructions save lives. We are working, and will continue to work, to restore quiet and security to the residents of the south.” – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Isaiah 2:13 And it will be against all the cedars of Lebanon that are lofty and lifted up, against all the oaks of Bashan…

Bashan is the modern day Golan Heights. This would be the area in the far north east corner of modern day Israel. This place is south of modern day Damascus, Syria. Geographical land marks would include a region east of the Jordan River and north of the Arnon River. This territory extended from Gilead in the south to Mount Hermon on the north.

Joshua 21:27 And to the Gershonites, one of the clans of the Levites, were given out of the half-tribe of Manasseh, Golan in Bashan with its pasturelands, the city of refuge for the manslayer…
