Syria Threatens to Launch Scud Missiles at Israel

It would appear that conditions are ripe for movement towards the fulfillment of Isaiah 17.

Syria’s government reportedly transmitted a message to Israel through Russian mediators that it would strike Israel with Scud missiles if the Jewish state “strikes Syria one more time.”

Syria transmitted a message indirectly to Israel threatening to fire Scud missiles against the Jewish state if the IDF continues to strike targets within Syrian territory, according to a report on Saturday in the Lebanese outlet Al-Diyar.

“Syria could retaliate against Israel by firing Scud missiles should the latter strike Syria one more time,” the message said.

The Scud missiles would supposedly carry about half a ton of explosives and would be fired without warning. The report claims Syria has at least 800 Scud missiles.

The message adds if Israel conducts another operation within Syria, the Syrian army will immediately target Haifa’s port and petrochemical plant.

Israel’s reported strikes in Syria, aimed at preventing advanced weaponry from reaching the Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah, have gone unanswered by Damascus.

Tensions between Israel and Syria escalated over a week ago when anti-aircraft missiles were launched from Syria at Israeli aircraft. Israel’s arrow defense system successfully intercepted one of the missiles.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman warned Syria against any future targeting of Israeli aircraft, threatening to destroy Syria’s aerial defense apparatus if Syria repeats its behavior.


If Syria were actually dumb enough to decide to attach any chemical weapons to any of those SCUD missiles....one could see how Israel might go ballistic and decide to put a sudden and permanent stop to any further attacks.

Isaiah 17
“See, Damascus will no longer be a city
    but will become a heap of ruins.
2 The cities of Aroer will be deserted
    and left to flocks, which will lie down,
    with no one to make them afraid.
3 The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,
    and royal power from Damascus;
the remnant of Aram will be
    like the glory of the Israelites,”
declares the Lord Almighty.
