Combat report: Russian Air Force destroys Al-Qaeda offshoot depot in Syria

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

WEB Notes: If Russia cannot complete their goal in another week then I highly doubt they are destroying ISIS. It should not take that long. Notice Damascus was one of the sites hit.

The Russian Air Force eliminated 83 militant targets in 46 sorties in the last 24 hours, bombing terrorist groups in five Syrian provinces, destroying camps, warehouses, vehicles and workshops, Russia’s Defense Ministry reports. The airstrikes hit targets of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and Al-Nusra Front in the provinces of Aleppo, Damascus, Deir al-Zor, Hama, Idlib and Latakia.

  1. We all know Russia is not going to destroy isis in another week or any other amount of time. That is clearly not the goal. The destruction of Syria is the goal, and with that the overthrow of the government and a banker controlled government installed (and banking system). Everyone will keep trying to help Syria until it is controlled by the bankers. And then it is on to Iran. Nobody is really targeting North Korea, the bankers must be planning to bomb them off the map, one small nuke in the capitol and that country would be kaput.

    • I am with you there Hank. I often think about NK too. I think they are a side show used here and there. I do not see them being a real issue to take down.

    • I’m probably standing alone on this forum…believing that Damascus (SYRIA) will become a “ruinous heap”…in quite another way! Forgive me Brandon, but I can’t see it any other way for now! Pray for me to receive understanding on this…if it is not as I believe. See here’s the thing…
      Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

      To document that this spiritual slaughter is accomplished by the desolator, the soon coming spurious messiah, all we need do is check out the type in the historical records where we find that Damascus was overthrown by the king of Assyria, Tiglath-pileser, who also slew Rezin in 632 BC. Remember we read about Rezin who made a protective alliance with Ephraim and the son of Ramaliah back in the
      7th chapter of Isaiah, that chapter where God also called the kings of Syria and Israel a couple of burned-out pokers… as in firebrands. God’s Word also gives record of the overthrow of Damascus in 2 Kings 16:9.

      2 Kings 16:9 And the king of Assyria hearkened unto him: for the king of Assyria went up against Damascus, and took it, and carried the people of it captive to Kir, and slew Rezin.

      Never forget however, that our Father is in complete control and that He is the one who sends the Assyrian as a rod of chastisement in His hand! Isaiah 10:5 “O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation.” In fact, in Joel 2:25 God calls that great locust army that shall come against our people to make the land (spiritually) desolate, “His army”! And once the whole world has been taken captive and spiritually desolated by that great locust army, with the exception of those servants of God who have the seal of God in their foreheads, Jesus Christ shall return and utterly smash and destroy the Beast with its nations and cities who have been spiritually laid waste and they shall all awaken
      to their shame and despair at the sound of that 7th Trump when the King of kings and Lord of lords returns to establish Zion!

    • See…here’s a prelude leading up to Isaiah 17:1…with DAMASCUS (SYRIA) becoming a “ruinous heap”! Bear with me….Let us do a little bit of review…of the history in advance that we read about in Isaiah 14 concerning the *DESOLATOR* who made the world as a wilderness.

      Isaiah 14:16-17 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

      All of the nations, such as: Moab, Damascus (Syria)…Ethiopia, Egypt, The Desert of the Sea (Babylon)…Dumah, Arabia…along with the true house of Israel, e.g. America, Great Britain, Canada, parts of Europe, etc., are going to “consider” the lowlife serpent who elevated himself as world ruler in order to be like the Most High!

      17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

      Yes, the desolator, of whom the Assyrian was an historical type, is coming to overthrow and breakdown the cities, and “they shall be a RUINOUS HEAP”! To that end, came God’s warning to DAMASCUS, the capital of SYRIA!

      I am stuck on that position…and can’t seem to get away from it! Don’t want to bottle it all up inside…and let it explode! 🙂
