Israel Warned To Prepare For Syrian Surface-to-Surface Missile Attack

Guardian Express Staff

As the already unthinkable pace of slaughter in Syria accelerates further, Western military sources warned Saturday, July 14, that not only Israel but additional strategic targets in Middle East lands deemed enemies by Bashar Assad should prepare for him to launch surface-to-surface missile attacks. The assaults would start out with conventional warheads, but as the regime continued to be hammered, the beleaguered ruler might well arm the next round of missiles from his huge stockpile of mustard gas – not to mention sarin nerve poison and cyanide.

Western intelligence sources say Assad has a list of targets ready to go. Analyzing the Syrian war game taking place last week, they calculated that Wednesday and Thursday, July 11 and 12, the Syrian army practiced shooting missiles at strategic centers in Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

But while most Western officials now confirm that Assad has moved his WMD warheads and shells out of storage, they are already divided on what it means. Some US officials are soft-pedaling the menace, offering the theory that the Syrian ruler is only safeguarding his unconventional weapons from falling into rebel – or what he calls “terrorist” – hands.

Other Western intelligence watchers, especially in Britain, believe he is preparing a campaign of ethnic cleansing at centers of revolt and report that chemical weapons have already been transferred to Homs, Latakia and Aleppo for operational use.

That is one game-changing predicament facing the West. It would quickly assume a regional dimension if Turkey, Israel and Jordan were to come under Syrian missile assault.  Air and missile reprisals against Syrian military or regime centers would carry the danger of Hizballah retaliation from Lebanon leading to direct attacks from Iran. Before going down that road, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan – who are not on speaking terms – would certainly confer with US President Barack Obama.

Even then, their consultations would not necessarily lead to action.

For example, three weeks have gone by since Syria shot down a Turkish Air Force reconnaissance jet, yet after close consultation with Washington, the Erdogan government was persuaded to leave the incident without response. Administration officials explained to the Turks that covert warfare carried a price in failure and casualties.

This US attitude might well embolden the Syrian ruler to risk his arm with limited missile strikes against Turkey and Israel and bank on the Obama administration twisting their leaders’ arms behind their backs to prevent them making any serious response.

The situation in the middle east appears to be worsening with no end it sight. It’s unsure if Bashar Assad feels his back is against the wall yet, but it is reasonable to prepare for what might be an unpredictable move on the part of Syria.

    We are all aware of the predicted destruction of Damascus. If Syria should use bio weapons against either their own people or their surrounding nations, those actions would provoke a well-deserved cause for reaction. What an anticipated time of history – and a privilege to be an eye-witness to it!! The entire Word comes down to our generation and the return of our Savior. I know that these events are frightening in the natural, but they are also incredibly exciting in this so-obvious prophetic timeline. Hang on to your hats…

    Read the headlines … read your Bible … they seem to be one and the same, these days. God is definitely shouting (Jeremiah 25), as “nation rises against nation”, and the great storm arises in the east. WAKE UP people … Jesus is on the way to gather His bride.

    Isaiah 17 also says That the fortress of Ephraim will cease. I believe the fortress is in Tel Aviv because HarKiriat houses the Israeli Defense Department, the headquarters to the IDF (Israel Defence Force) and one or two of the regional Armies’ headquarters.

      Thanks for the information on the location of IDF hq, I did not know that. For about 4 years I have been curious to see if IS 17 was being set up to take place. Those who think the rapture may soon take place are correct for doing so. However no one knows the exact day or hour. I think that when IS 17 takes place that the ecconomic system will soon tumble and that WMD will be used in the region and the whole world will panic and demand a new currency and government system to aid in stopping war. I think that IS 17 is the trigger that starts the ball moving for a one world government and that the Christians will be taken up at some point before the anti-christ takes charge and is revealed. Again, thanks for the tip on the location of the IDF!

    The way things are looking, I believe that Damascus will be destroyed first,then Egypt will be next. America will proubly be hit later and be burned with fire,if America is mystery Babylon?
    With all of this happening now; don’t be surprised that we as the church, is raptured right after the burden of egypt is taking out.

    My study of Bible Prophecy for over 30 years combined with hearing from the Lord in the Prophetic tells me that we’re on the verge of the destruction of Damascus and the beginning of the Ezekiel 38 war. I believe that these events, combined with a global economic collapse will produce the antichrist. Therefore, the Rapture is imminent. We ARE the generation Jesus spoke of in Matt 24.

    Would also have to say Matthew 24 talks about the Tribulation period- Abomination of Desolation(mid point) leading up to Armageddon and Jesus spoke of the elect in v22. In Rev 7 it says all kinds of people will come to faith and be martyred so He was addressing everyone from the time it was written thru He returns.

      The “Elect” of Matt 24 are not Christians, but God’s chosen People, the Jews. We, as Christians, look to the signs He spoke of merely to show us how close we are to the Tribulation hour and His second coming. He wasn’t referring to the Rapture as such. The Rapture is an Imminency Doctrine and its timing is not dependent upon any of the signs He mentioned in Matt 24. He commanded us to watch and be in a constant state of anticipation of His return for believers.

        I forgot to add that, considering the current world in which we live, we as believers would want to be considered as the Five “Wise Virgins” of Matt 25 vs. the Five “Foolish” ones when He comes for us. Additionally, once the Tribulation hour begins and the 21 judgements of God take place, what else would there be for us to be looking for but the Rapture, which is just another one of many reasons for a Pre-Tribulation Rapture. We’re not appointed unto Wrath (1st Thess 5:9).

    In Matt 24/Luke 21 He addresses both signs when the rapture is near, the end of the Tribulation. 1 day is like 1000 yrs to Him but he used the analogy of “birth pains” they increase intensity and dont reverse course, so we are seeing that with earthquakes, civil wars, rumors of war, pestilence(contagious disease) famine, tornadoes, etc. The alignment of nations is all spot on, Europe is calling for a political ruler, a world bank etc.

      Bill, That is exactly what Jesus was referring to in Luke 18:8 when He stated, “Nevertheless, when the Son of Man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?” Obviously, this is a time of history that He’ll lose many followers through discouragement as these prophetic events begin to happen. Lift up your head; Redemption draws near. 🙂

      Remember Barry, when you see on the news and hear people talk about the millions of people that are simply gone it was because Jesus took the Christians to be with him. If you believe it at that time then your soul could still be saved. You then need to decide to live for God’s will and not your own and pray to Jesus and admit that you are a sinner and ask for his gift of forgiveness of your sins. Then no matter what do not take the mark of the beast. When the 1 world government is built the man in charge will be the anti-christ and he will cause all people to take his mark in order to buy or sell or to hold a job. It may be a tatoo or computer chip under the skin, we don’t yet know, but don’t take it. Then start reading the Bible.

    I believe that as Syria launches chemical attacks on Israel, that they will fulfill Isaiah 17 and then Ps.93 which will bring on the Ez. 38 and 39. They will use their military might too destroy their enemy on the first two and then God himself will take care of the rest.

        Matthew 24 (the Olivet discourse) is referring to Israel and the Jews during the seven year tribulation period; it is not a reference for the Church. The Church Age began at Pentecost and will conclude at the Rapture. Jesus even told those in attendance a few verses later that they will be hated for His names sake; they will be hated above all nations. The Church is not a nation.

      The Rapture will not occur for a maximum of 12 years, and a minimum of 7 years. First there must be the Psalm 83 war. Then once the war begins, to stop it, there will be the signing of the peace covenant for 7 years… Read Daniel 9:27, Daniel 11:31, Daniel 12:1, Daniel 12:11, II Thessalonians 2, Revelation 12: 7-9, & 12-14, Matthew 24:15,- 21. Then when the Rapture does occur, that event will start the 3.5 year (not 7 year) Great Tribulation!!!!!! Revelation 13:5

    To me, the language of Isaiah 17 suggests that Israel will indeed be struck upon by chemical or biological weapons, before it obliterates Damascus. I mean, afterall, it would have to be something extremely serious has occurred before they exercise the Samson Option on the Syrian capital. And no matter how much arm twisting or outside pressure is exerted by Obama or any other Western leader, if Israel does get attacked by WMDs of this nature, Netanyahu will not hesitate to destroy the source of such an attack, and will also be sending a message to others ‘Don’t even dare think of joining in on the desire to wipe us out’.

      Yes, the Tribulation hour will soon be upon us, which means the Rapture of the Church ( those believers in Jesus Christ) is even closer. Isaiah 17 does come to mind, as well as the following Ezekiel 38 & 39 invasion of Israel by Russia, Iran and other Islamist hordes.
