Syria and Damascus

“The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinousStrongs 4654: mappalah, map-paw-law´; or mappelah, map-pay-law´; from 5307; something fallen, i.e. a ruin:—ruin( ous). heap.”
—Isaiah 17:1

“Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to flee, and fear hath seized on her: anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail.”
—Jeremiah 49:24

Air raid sirens went off in the Golan Heights and local residents reported hearing the sounds of explosions just after noon.

The IDF said that the fire was spill over from fighting between Syrian rebels and Assad regime forces, but was still investigating the incident. There was no known IDF return fire on Syrian positions.

The sirens came amid tension in the North after Israel reportedly struck targets belonging to the Syrian army over the weekend.

According to international media reports, the Israel Air Force launched multiple air strikes on strategic missile bases in Syria last week, intercepting an Iranian-Syrian attempt to smuggle advanced missiles, perhaps Scuds, to Hezbollah’s numerous weapons depots in Lebanon. The IDF has officially declined to comment on the reports.

In an apparent response to the alleged Israeli air strikes, suspected Hezbollah operatives attacked Israel on Sunday night, when four terrorists from an Assad regime-controlled area in Syria tried to plant bombs on the border with Israel, before being killed in an IAF strike.
