Russia, Iran and Turkey Agree to Create Safe Zones in Syria

Ezekiel says that in the very last days Russia, Iran and Turkey will be the major players in a plan to destroy Israel.

So we watch for these three players to come together.

Today we see this headline on Google News;


Russia, Iran and Turkey signed a memorandum Thursday backing the establishment of safe zones in Syria as representatives of the Syrian opposition stormed out of peace talks in the Kazakh capital of Astana over Tehran's involvement.

Russia and Iran, which support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and Turkey, which backs various rebel groups attempting to overthrow him, have come together to create areas of de-escalation designed to protect civilians from ongoing violence between various factions warring since 2011. The three international powers oversee the Astana peace process between the Syrian government and the opposition and are attempting to seek a diplomatic solution to the six-year conflict. Iran's participation in the most recent round of talks, however, caused some opposition delegates to exit the room in frustration, Reuters reported. 

Rebels, comprised primarily of Sunni Muslim groups, have frequently criticized majority-Shiite Muslim Iran's support for Assad, whose Alawite background is considered a sect of Shiite Islam, and Lebanese Shiite Muslim militant group Hezbollah, one of the most powerful factions fighting alongside the Syrian army. Opposition members also have decried airstrikes by the Russian and Syrian air forces on rebel-held areas that Moscow and Damascus say are controlled by jihadist groups such as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, an ultraconservative coalition affiliated with Al-Qaeda.

The entire opposition delegation briefly suspended its participation in talks Wednesday over the continued aerial bombardment, but later returned, according to Reuters. Despite Wednesday's interruption and Thursday's outburst of dissent, the Astana peace process was reportedly still on with Kazakh Foreign Minister Kairat Abdrakhmanov saying the next talks would be held in July.

Prior to Thursday's meeting, Russian President Vladimir Putin went out of his way to secure support for the safe zone initiative from other foreign leaders. Putin met Wednesday with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who staged a military intervention in northern Syria in August on behalf of rebels fighting the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) and Kurdish militias, which have since received U.S. support. A day earlier, Putin spoke with President Donald Trump in a conversation that the Russian leader said concluded with the two heads of state agreeing on safe zones and closer cooperation.


Remember, this is the first time in human history that Russia, Iran and Turkey have been involved in anything together.

When you see ALL THESE THINGS happening all at once then make sure you are expectant and excited for the return of Christ.  First He comes for his bride and later He comes to rule and reign on earth for 1000 years.

Certainly, no one knows the day or the hour but none of us should really be surprised if it happened today, tomorrow, next week, next month or next year.

Why?  Because ALL THE SIGNS are manifesting at the very same time AND Israel is back in the land.

1 Thessalonians 5
4 But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief
