Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
I am watching the Middle East very closely. It appears that Saudi Arabia has no choice but war with Iran. With the fall of ISIS, the way is now clear for Iran to move its army into Syria which will threaten Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Iran is very aggressive throughout the region and the Saudis are backed into a corner.
If Iran moves it army into Syria or attacks Saudi Arabia, Israel will be forced to attack Iran which also means Hezbollah and Hamas. Israel can’t let Iran defeat Saudi Arabia. This war will drag Egypt into it.

Assad regime reportedly buried thousands after mass executions; Reports come from US intelligence gathering and human rights groups; USA: We believe that the building of a crematorium is an effort to cover up the extent of mass murders taking place in Sednaya prison.
The Unites States reported on Monday that it has evidence that Syrian President Bashaar al-Assad built a crematorium at a military prison outside of Damascus.
United States President Donald Trump’s Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs, Stuart Jones, confirmed the evidence from United States intelligence that Assad’s regime has disposed of bodies into mass graves and has built a crematorium. He stated that “Credible sources have believed that many of the bodies have been disposed in mass graves. We now believe that the Syrian regime has installed a crematorium in the Sednaya prison complex which could dispose of detainees’ remains with little evidence.”… read more
Important Middle East update in light of the Israeli strike in Damascus and the intercepted Syrian drone! Tension is rising in Europe and Trump is on his way to Jerusalem soon.
Fighting around Syria’s capital Damascus has cut 300,000 people off from humanitarian aid and pauses in the conflict are needed to let aid convoys in, Jan Egeland, U.N. humanitarian advisor on Syria, said on Thursday.
“They are totally dependent on our supplies. Starvation will be just around the corner unless we get there in the coming weeks,” Egeland told Reuters in an interview after chairing the weekly Syria humanitarian taskforce meeting in Geneva.
The besieged Douma and Kafr Batna areas of rural Damascus contain 161,000 and 142,000 civilians respectively. Their food stocks have dwindled and informal supply routes have been cut.
“The increase in the fighting has disastrous effects on the civilian population,” Egeland said. “They haven’t had any supplies by the U.N. since October in Douma, and in the Kafr Batna area not since June of last year.”… [read more]

Isaiah 17:1 [ Prophecy about Damascus ] The [mournful, inspired] oracle (a burden to be carried) concerning Damascus [capital of Aram (Syria), and Israel’s defense against Assyria]. “Listen carefully, Damascus will cease to be a city And will become a fallen ruin.
There were two unclaimed explosions in Damascus overnight Thursday and early Friday (Jan.12-13) – one at an officers club in Damascus and the second at Mezzeh airport, which Syria alleged was the work of the new Israeli S-35 stealth aircraft firing across the border from a point over the Sea of Galilee. There was no claim to either of the attacks.
The standard Israeli policy of striking any Iranian arms shipments for Hizballah in Lebanon when they cross through Syria would not longer be applicable to any such air strike, if indeed one was launched..
The Lebanese Shiite Hizballah deploys 9,000 elite fighters in Syria to fight for Bashar Assad. Its Iranian arms supplies no longer need to risk being trucked through Syria to Lebanon; they can be delivered directly to Hizballah bases in Syria without exposure to Israel air strikes. Indeed, should the pro-Iranian Hizballah decide to go back to shooting missiles at Israel – or using Iranian-supplied unconventional weapon – it has new launching pads readily available in Syria from those very bases. They are located in the Qalamoun mountains in western Syria and at Zabadani, a Syrian ghost town near the Damascus-Beirut highway, which the Lebanese terror group has made its military center. Both would be obvious targets for Israel to attack rather than Damascus’ Mezzeh airport…. [read more]

Arab media reported overnight that Israeli aircraft had entered Syria and bombed an arms convoy near the capital of Damascus.
The Syrian regime’s official news agency confirmed the strike, and accused Israel of trying to “divert attention from the successes achieved by the Syrian Arab army and to raise the deteriorating morals of the terrorist gangs,” by which it meant all rebel groups in the country.
But more likely is that Israel bombed this particular convoy because it was transferring weapons to Hezbollah forces, which are fighting on the side of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.
Israel has vowed to do everything possible to prevent Hezbollah from strengthening as a result of the Syrian civil war.
The incident comes just days after Israel battled ISIS terrorists operating on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights… [Full Source]
