By Craig C. White

January 26, 2019: The Prophet Jeremiah 49:23 says that Hamah and Tell Rifaat will hear evil tidings and then Damascus will be destroyed. Turkey is shelling Tell Rifaat now. Tell Rifaat is called Arpad in Jeremiah 49:23.

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.

Battle for Idlib Syria map

The Turkish Army has already conquered a lot of territory in northwestern Syria. They are now threatening to enter northeastern Syria. This week the US, Russia, and Iran approved Turkey’s plans to create a “safe zone” in northeastern Syria. The Turkish Army is already deep inside of the Idlib province in northwestern Syria. Idlib is nestled between the cities of Hamah and Tell Rifaat. So the Turkish Army is already in position to attack these two cities that the Bible identifies. The Syrian Army is amassed in Hamah threatening to attack Idlib. This week Turkey has been shelling the Kurdish forces in Tell Rifaat. Shelling is usually a precursor to a land assault. We should definitely be watching developments in the northwestern Syria cities of Hamah and Tell Rifaat. Check out the map below to understand where the fighting forces are situated in northwestern Syria.

Turkey shelling Tell Rifaat for past three days

Beginning in August 2016 Turkey took over a swath of territory along the Turkish border in northwestern Syria. Turkey took Afrin in March 2018. Tell Rifaat is part of the Afrin region. Tell Rifaat is the last remaining Kurdish held city in the Afrin region and in all of northwestern Syria. After Turkey took over Afrin the Syrian Army and some Russian troops entered Tell Rifaat to help the Kurds defend the city. Kurdish troops remain in Tell Rifaat and are reportedly positioned along the western side of the city in order to prevent a Turkish advance. Over the past year Turkey has also continued to strengthen its military positions inside of Idlib.
