The near collapse of President Bashar Assad’s reign in Syria may bring on an attack by Hezbollah in Lebanon against Israel in the near future. Assad has been the sponsor of Hezbollah for many years. If he is replaced, the new leader may not be sympathetic with the terrorists. Some military experts believe Hezbollah will act soon in order to diffuse the uprising against Assad in Syria.
Over a year ago it was known that Hezbollah had hundreds of bunkers and over a thousand sites in Southern Lebanon where they could launch their 40,000 or so missiles against Israel.
Now it is known that more sophisticated missiles are being moved to Lebanon, including the Iranian-made Zilzal, Fajr 3 and Fajr 4 models.
Israel is taking the threat very seriously. They just concluded a week-long military drill called Turning Point 5. It simulated a full-fledged war game and simultaneous mass casualty events, such as a plane crash in a residential area, a head-on collision between a bus and a truck loaded with dangerous materials, and riots. Some 3,100 air raid sirens summoned about half of Israel’s population into shelters.
It is likely that such a war will be swift and devastating for Syria, possibly fulfilling the warning from Isaiah 17.
1 A prophecy against Damascus:
“See, Damascus will no longer be a city
but will become a heap of ruins.
2 The cities of Aroer will be deserted
and left to flocks, which will lie down,
with no one to make them afraid.
3 The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,
and royal power from Damascus;
If Syria and Lebanon are disabled by a defensive strike from Israel, it would explain why they are not mentioned in the alignment of the greater war of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39) that might be the same as the second seal of Revelation 6:3-4.
