SYRIA - US jets will defend favoured rebels in Syria against attack by Assad regime jets, in an extension of their mission which entrenches America & its allies further in the civil war. The first “ authorised rebel ” fighters trained by the US army in Turkey crossed over into Syria last month - though a number of men from the brigade they joined were subsequently kidnapped by al-Qaeda’s local affiliate, Jabhat al-Nusra. One reason the fighters are distrusted by the other rebels is that the United States, as well as bombing Islamic State of Iraq & the Levant (Isil) from the air, is also attacking elements within Jabhat al-Nusra, which has proved the most formidable opponent of the regime & is allied with rebel groups who do not share its ideology. The other is that the rebels are being specifically trained to fight Isil - not the regime. The shift in strategy to allow bombing raids was reported by the Wall Street Journal.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - This looks like mission creep. Two years ago over 1,300 people were killed in Syria by a chemical attack by the Assad regime. Britain & America stood on the brink of going to war with Assad - but Russia intervened & war was averted. Two years later despite Obama’s efforts to keep out of the quagmire of Syria , America is slowly being dragged in. The catalyst for America’s involvement was ISIS. ISIS has spread from Iraq into Syria. The US authorised attacks on ISIS in Syria. But this week this was changed to include attacks against the Assad regime itself where so-called “ authorised rebels ” were operating. Also this week (surely not by coincidence) Russia’s Tass news agency reported that Russian Airborne Troops are ready to assist Syria in countering terrorists. We can see how potentially in Syria the king of the north ( Russia ) & the king of the south ( US/UK ) could come into conflict with each other – as the Bible says will happen.
DANIEL 11 v 40 - And at the time of the end shall the ' king of the south ' push at him : & the ' king of the north ' ( Russian ' Gog ' ) shall come against him ' like a whirlwind ' with chariots, & with horsemen, & with many ships ; & he shall enter into the countries, & shall overflow & pass over.
