70,000 Kurds flee to the south
Turkey is taking over Syria
By Craig C. White
The Turkish incursion into northeastern Syria is all about chasing away the Kurds and replacing them with Sunni refugees that will accept Turkish governance.
As the Turkish Army shells Kurdish villages some seventy thousand Kurdish residents are fleeing towards the south away from the war.
“it’s starting to look like a campaign of ethnic cleansing – forcing the local Kurdish population away from cities and villages. Instead they’re putting in place many Syrian Arabs who sought refuge in Turkey, people who don’t come from the region.”
Now here is the Biblical perspective. Jeremiah 49:23 describes the Turkish Army as they invade northwestern Syria. According to Jeremiah, Turkey will attack the Syrian Army in Hamah and also attack the Kurds in Tell Rifaat. The Turkish Army is arrayed against these cities right now. I expect that after the Turkish Army brushes away the Kurds from northeastern Syria then they will begin attacking northwestern Syria. Jeremiah says that when Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed.
A note about the Kurds: The Kurds are the ancient Medes. There are over 50,000,000 Kurds living in northern Iran, northern Iraq, northeastern Syria, and southeastern Turkey. The Kurds are the largest people group on earth who do not have their own nation. Don’t worry too much about the Kurds. The Bible does not predict their demise. As a matter of fact during the Tribulation, the Kurds may strengthen their alliance with Iran. Then together Iran and the Kurds may destroy Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
