October 20, 2019: I heard two first hand reports that the Turkish Army is gathering a major offensive on Tell Rifaat.

One week ago the Turkish Army entered the Kurdish held region of northeastern Syria. The planned attack on Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria is in a different region to the west of the Euphrates River. Tell Rifaat is the last remaining Kurdish held town west of the Euphrates.

Meanwhile in Hamah; the Syrian Army is busy fighting against Turkish supported Al-Qaeda rebel groups. The Turkish Army also is amassed next to Hamah in the Idlib province. Turkey has recently threatened to attack the Syrian Army in Hamah.

October 22, 2019: Turkey and Russia make agreement for the Kurds to leave Tell Rifaat. The Kurds have not yet agreed.

The Prophet Jeremiah says that when Hamah and Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria hear evil reports 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.

Events in Syria are just about to mirror what the Bible says. Things are about to get real. Turkey will attack the Syrian Army in Hamah and will also attack the Kurds in Tell Rifaat.

October 26, 2019: Shots between the Kurds and Turkish Army are exchanged in Tell Rifaat. Turkish helicopters flying overhead.

The Turkish Army is staging troops for a major assault on Tell Rifaat. Turkish President Erdogan said that if the Turkish Army accomplishes one thing in Syria it will be to conquer Tell Rifaat. The attack on Tell Rifaat has not reached the main stream media yet but it is coming. End time Bible prophecy is about to begin in earnest. It is High Time to Awake out of our sleep because our salvation is nearer than when we believed (Romans 13:11).

  1. Craig,

    I wasn’t expecting to see Erdogan’s so called,”Operation of Peace” move to the Northwest so quickly. I came home from the hospital last night, after being there for 12 days with a ruptured appendix and multiple complications. When I awoke this morning, big news in Idlib and Turkey is closer to Damascus. I hope Israel’s leaders are watching the Northern Gate facing Damascus. We know that many are watching for Jesus to to come back via the Eastern Gate, but the Anti Christ will come from Damascus towards the Northern Gate.

    Back on the wall watching and praying,



    1. I hope that you get well soon. Just a note; after Turkey destroys Damascus I think that they will enter the Golan Heights. Jesus will return to stop them. Turkey won’t reach Jerusalem this time. It’s likely that Turkey will attack Jerusalem and Judea from Egypt during the middle of the Tribulation period.


    2. The Turkish Army has been in northwestern Syria for a couple of years. They just haven’t directly fought against the Syrian Army yet. Although, today for the first time I heard that the Turkish Army has directly engaged the Syrian Army in northeastern Syria.
