Russia Summons Israel to Explain Syria Strikes

When you see Russia, Syria and Israel mentioned in the same need to pay attention.

Russia summons Israeli ambassador to explain air raids in Syria

Russia summoned the Israeli ambassador to demand an explanation for Israel’s air raids in Syria last week, Moscow has confirmed, as an Israeli drone was blamed for the targeted killing of a senior pro-Assad fighter in a second reported incident.

The summons, made on Friday, was confirmed by Russia’s foreign ministry which said the Israeli ambassador to Moscow, Gary Koren, had been asked to explain an exchange of fire with Syrian government forces in which anti-aircraft missiles were fired at Israeli jets.

According to Israel’s Channel 2, the Israeli strike hit close to Russian troops.

Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Mikhail Bogdanov, said Russia had “expressed concern”. The diplomatic intervention marks the first apparent fracture in the secretive deconfliction arrangement between the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, and Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, over where, when and who Israeli jets can strike in Syria.

Israel had interpreted the arrangement as giving it a relatively free hand to attack warehouses and shipments of advanced weapons destined for Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed and pro-Bashar al-Assad Lebanese militant group. But Friday’s raid, reportedly by four Israeli jets which penetrated Syrian airspace, appears to have changed that dynamic after the interception of an SA-5 missile that flew into Israel forced it for the first time in the six-year Syrian civil war to acknowledge an attack.

Syria’s use of anti-aircraft missiles against the Israeli jets, however, suggested an increased confidence in the Assad regime, which has seen a number of similar air raids by Israel. Syria’s ambassador to the UN, Bashar al-Jaafari, on Sunday insisted the Syrian response was “in line with Israel’s terrorist operation” and had “changed the rules of the game”.


Clearly, we are in very dangerous times when you have 7 different nations operating their military in the same nation.  One wrong missile or one wrong move could ignite some serious problems.

Ezekiel 38 is on the horizon.  We have no idea WHEN that will play out....but as we have said before it seems likely that it would play out AFTER the rapture.  Maybe in the time lapse AFTER the rapture but BEFORE the 70th Week of Daniel commences?

Remember, the rapture IS NOT the event that kicks off Daniel's 70th's the PEACE AGREEMENT that the Antichrist confirms with Israel that kicks it off.
