Israel Prepares For War On Its Northern Front As Netanyahu Warns Iran Over Buildup In Syria

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Israel has boosted its air defense in the North following a significant confrontation between the Jewish state, Syria and Iran that led to the loss of an F-16i fighter jet.

“For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.” Jeremiah 29:10 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: For years, Iran has waged a proxy war with Israel by supplying its enemies like Hamas and Hezbollah with rockets and weapons to attack them. But this weekend all that changed as Israel delivered a heavy blow to Iranian forces in Syria. Word coming out of Jerusalem this morning says Israel now preparing for open war with Iran. And when you consider that the 70th anniversary of the regathering of Israel is just a few months away, the prophetic potential begins to leap off the charts. 

Israel issued stark warnings on Sunday over Iran’s presence in neighbouring Syria after a confrontation threatened to open a new and unpredictable period in the country’s seven-year civil war. Israel carried out major air raids in Syria on Saturday, including against what it described as Iranian targets — the first time it had publicly acknowledged doing so since the war began.

The raids came after an Israeli F16 fighter was shot down by Syrian air defences. The pilots survived, but it was Israel’s first loss of a warplane in battle since 1982.

“We inflicted on Saturday a heavy blow to Iranian and Syrian forces,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the start of Sunday’s cabinet meeting. “We made clear to everyone that our rules of engagement will not change in any way. We will continue to harm anyone who tries to harm us. This was our policy and this will remain our policy.”

While the army refused to comment on the reports, witnesses reported seeing a convoy of missile-defense batteries heading north near the Israeli-Arab city of Baka al-Gharbiya. Other witnesses posted photos of several trucks carrying the batteries on central highways in northern Israel.

Israel’s air defenses currently include the Iron Dome, designed to shoot down short-range rockets; the Arrow system, which intercepts ballistic missiles outside of the Earth’s atmosphere; and the David’s Sling missile-defense system, which is designed to intercept tactical ballistic missiles, medium- to long-range rockets and cruise missiles fired from ranges of between 40 km to 300 km.



Israel also has Patriot-missile batteries stationed in the North and has used them to intercept drones infiltrating into Israeli airspace from Syria. In September, an Iranian-built unmanned aerial vehicle breached the “Bravo line” that marks the Syrian demilitarized zone, and was intercepted by an Israeli Patriot anti-ballistic missile launched from a station near the northern city of Safed.

The first use of the Arrow system was in April when it was launched to intercept three surface-to-air missiles fired toward IAF jets by Syrian-regime air defense.

On Saturday, an Iranian drone, which took off from Syria’s T4 airbase in northern Homs province, flew through Jordanian territory before it infiltrated into Israel. It flew for about a minute and a half in the northern Jordan Valley before it was shot down by a helicopter flown by Lt.-Col. “L.”, commander of the 113 Squadron. Israel has boosted its air defense in the North following a significant confrontation between the Jewish state, Syria and Iran that led to the loss of an F-16i fighter jet.

      First the babylon you speak of already took place, or you wouldn’t have a new testament,Jesus is the new testament that deleted the covenant of the old testament. And the new Babylon comes down from the skies.thats what’s so misleading is so many pick and choose quotes to fit an agenda without knowledge of ancient texts it it’s entirety. Jesus said I bring a new covenant that’s how the old testament and it’s teaching was many in history were allowed to break all God’s commandments ,today’s Israel even netenyahu can’t dispute John Hopkins geneticist that proved the majority in today’s Israel have no Hebrew blood,thus impossible for them to be SEMITES. A semite is ones who’s original language is semetis,Hebrew,Arabic,aramaic,geez,aringya.hebrew was a dead language ,even Israelis didn’t make it the official language in Palestine til 1922 does that sound like thousands of years ago or did a group of Nordic who spoke turkic adopt the religion learned a semetic language for an agenda. They scream anti-Semitism but yet they are not true SEMITES,Arabs are, palestinians are,heck even Maltese are. But not a Nordic people who merely learned it for prestige and power ,that would be more of Revelations 2 warning of fake jews
