Explosions Rock Damascus Airport

We wonder how much longer Damascus can remain a city?  When will it become a heap of ruins?

Isaiah 17 A Prophecy Against Damascus

17 A prophecy against Damascus:

“See, Damascus will no longer be a city
    but will become a heap of ruins.

Today we read that it sounds like Israel may have bombed the Damascus airport following some cargo flights coming in from Iran.

Explosions rocked the area near Damascus International Airport early Thursday morning following the arrival of cargo planes from Iran.

“Hours before the blasts, which took place at 3:25 A.M., two Iranian 747 cargo planes, an Iranian Ilyushin il-76 and a Syrian Ilyushin il-76 landed in Damascus, according to the flight radar tracking site,” Haaretz reported.

Emanuele Ottolenghi, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies who has tracked air traffic between Iran and Syria for years, said the planes were most likely delivering weapons.

In September of last year, Ottolenghi observed, “Flight records show that Iran Air’s flight 697 — the Tehran-Damascus route — was operated 66 times over the last year, including three times from Abadan, on Sept. 8, June 9 and May 10. There were at least an additional 20 Iran Air flights to Damascus between Dec. 14, 2015, and the end of August 2016. Not all originated in Tehran, however.”

Syrian state media has attributed the missile strikes to Israel, the BBC reported. While Syrian government sources claim that the strikes targeted a fuel tank and warehouses, rebel groups say that the target was an arms depot operated by the Iran-backed terror group Hezbollah.

Without admitting that Israel attacked the airport, Israeli Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katza said that the “attack is consistent with our policy to prevent Iran’s smuggling of advanced weapons via Syria to Hezbollah by Iran.”


If you want to imagine a likely scenario, just imagine that Syria leader Assad gets really desperate and decides to attack Israel in hopes that he can rally all the Muslims who hate Israel to his side. Imagine further that someone decides to use chemical weapons in the attack on Israel.

If that were the case we could see how Israel would immediately drop nuclear weapons on Damascus....and in the morning, the world would see that they are gone.

Isaiah 17
14 In the evening, sudden terror!
    Before the morning, they are gone!
