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!
