Breaking news: Turkey vs Syria war is beginning!

Turkish troops hit in Syria. Turkey retaliates against Syrian Army. US will support Turkey in Syria.

February 27:2020, Idlib Syria: Turkish officials said that the Syrian Army carried out an attack that killed at least 33 Turkish soldiers and wounded another 30.

Russia is providing the Syrian military with air support. So there are fears that Turkey and Russia may come into direct conflict. Frankly, I think that Russia will back down from fighting the Turkish Army. Russia has grown overly dependent on Turkey. Russia relies on Turkey for their shipping lanes through the Bosporus. Russia and Turkey just opened the TurkStream natural gas pipeline that runs from Russia to Turkey. Russia also recently sold their S-400 anti-aircraft missile system toTurkey. Russia tepidly supports the Assad regime. As long as Russia gets to keep their warm water shipping port in Latakia on Syria’s Mediterranean coast then Russia will likely be willing to deal with a new regime. This is bound to become tumultuous but in the end I don’t think that Turkey and Russia will go to war.

Turkey is now retaliating against the Syrian Army. Turkish officials said “All known” Syrian government targets are under fire by Turkish air and land support units.

The US will support Turkey in Syria. US Permanent Representative to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison said that the US is allied with Turkey and not with Russia in Syria and didn’t rule out a larger role for the US in Syria helping Turkey to fight against the Assad regime. This could bring the US directly against the Russian Air-force. Some difficult decisions will have to be made.

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 the following verse.

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.

Turkey is now retaliating against the Syrian Army which is based in Hamah. Turkey is also shelling the Kurds in Tell Rifaat. Turkish President Erdogan called an emergency government meeting in Ankara Thursday night. It is expected that Turkey will officially declare war against the Syrian Army.

February 29, 2020: Turkey is sending terrorists into Greece and calling them refugees.Turkish President Erdogan is blackmailing Europe by sending thousands of jihadis into Greece. These are not helpless refugees. They are young men of fighting age. They are already looting and burning Greece. Europe will be forced to support Erdogan as he attacks the Assad regime.

Erdogan told Putin in a phone call to stand aside and let Turkey “do what is necessary” with the Syrian government. I think that Russia will ultimately stand aside. That news would certainly qualify as the evil tidings that Jeremiah 49:23 describes. The news that Russia will no longer fight on Syria’s behalf would send shivers all the way to Damascus.

  1. Craig,

    I’ve telling folks to visit your site if they want to understand how this fits into prophecy. People don’t seem to have a desire to understand prophecy. As in the days of Noah??????
    Maybe when Israel sounds the alarm, saying that they are under attack.
