Kurds make deal with Syrian government for protection
By Craig C. White
The Kurds in northeastern Syria have agreed to hand over control of the border towns of Manbij and Kobane in exchange for military protection. The Syrian Army is on their way to fight military aggression by Turkey in northeastern Syria.
I am not a political analyst. I am a Bible prophecy teacher. So I don’t like giving political analysis but I am going to allow myself this one exception.
The Syrian Army is worn thin because of eight years of war. They can barely hold back the Turkish supported Al-Qaeda forces in Idlib province. Can you imagine if the Syrian Army attacks the Turkish Army in northeastern Syria? The Turkish Army will push them all the way back to Damascus!
The Prophet Jeremiah says that first the northwestern Syria towns of Hamah and Tell Rifaat will hear evil reports and then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. Tell Rifaat is called Arpad in Jeremiah 49:23 below.
Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.
The Syrian Army is in Hamah fighting against the Turkish supported rebels in nearby Idlib. Tell Rifaat is the last Kurdish controlled town in northwest Syria. The Turkish Army is already arrayed against both Hamah and Tell Rifaat. Watch Hamah and Tell Rifaat. Turkey’s march towards Damascus begins there.
