JERUSALEM - Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's prime minister, has issued a veiled threat to intervene directly in Syria's civil war for the first time, after Syrian rebels surrounded a village occupied by the Druze minority close to the border. Monitors from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the village of Khadr was now surrounded by rebels , who had taken a hilltop immediately to the north. Druze leaders in Israel & the Golan Heights warned that they might storm the frontier to save their relatives , fearing a sectarian massacre. Mr Netanyahu said he had given " instructions to do what is necessary " to help Syria's Druze. Jerusalem also warned Syrian rebel groups operating in southern Syria not to attack & to stay away from Khadr. Local media reports said the government was considering establishing a buffer zone on the Syrian side of the border for refugees - a move that would be an unprecedented step given decades in which the frontier has been a " frozen zone "..

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - The Druze are a secretive, tightly-knit religious sect whose origins can be traced to Egypt a thousand years ago. They believe that God was incarnated on earth in the form of their leader, al-Hakim bi-Amrih Alla. The Druze do not have their own homeland. Thus, many of them migrated to the isolated mountains of Lebanon , Syria & Israel , while others settled throughout the Middle East. There are 420,000 in Syria , 130,000 in Israel. Druze citizens are prominent in the Israel Defense Forces & in politics. As of 2012 , 61 of the senior commissioned officers in the IDF were Druze. Netanyahu has inferred this week that Israel will intervene in Syria to protect the Druze community who are under threat in the Syrian conflict. We know a time is coming when there will be conflict between Israel & Syria. It leaves Syria destroyed . . .
ISAIAH 17 v 3-4 ( NLT ) - 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,” declares the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. “ In that day Israel’s glory will grow dim , its robust body will waste away."
