SYRIA - The low morale, internal divisions and rapidly decreasing popularity, is facing its most serious challenges since the start of the four-year long Syrian Civil War that has claimed the lives of more 200,000 people. Multiple rebel offenses have seen strategically important cities fall under the auspices of rebel control, such as Idlib and Jisr al-Shegour in the North & a concerted rebel effort making its way towards Damascus in the South. “ The trend lines for Assad are bad & getting worse,” said a senior United States official in Washington who spoke to the New York Times on the condition of anonymity. As a result , Assad is being forced to lean on greater foreign support for propping up his ailing government , especially Hezbollah , the Lebanese terror group allied with Iran. In fact , Hezbollah now leads or even directs the fight in many places , angering some Syrian officers , according to Syrian soldiers.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS -
President Bashar al-Assad’s regime now appears in greater peril than at any time in the past three years. The capture last Saturday of the town of Jisr al-Shughour in northern Idlib province was just the latest in a string of battlefield victories by rebel forces , which have made significant advances in both the north & the south of the country. Here we have another division. Iran & Russia back Bashar Al-Assad. Western Allies & Saudi Arabia back the rebels. The magnitude of the death & destruction of the last 4 years is staggering. And yet there is more to come. There will be an explosive climax in Syria. In fact the climax will be that explosive that Damascus will cease to be a city. All the government in Syria will be wiped out & the nation in effect will come to an end. How do we know? Read Isaiah Ch.17 & it tells you exactly what is coming . . .
ISAIAH 17 v1-3 NLT - Look, the city of Damascus will disappear ! It will become a ' heap of ruins '. The towns of Aroer will be deserted. Flocks will graze in the streets & lie down undisturbed, with no one to chase them away. The fortified towns of Israel will also be destroyed & the royal power of Damascus will end. All that remains of Syria will share the fate of Israel’s departed glory.
