ISRAELI FEARS IN PUTIN'S MOVE: PM makes lightning trip to Moscow
MOSCOW - Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, has met the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, to discuss security concerns along Israel’s northern border and how to avoid accidental clashes between Israel and Russian forces supporting Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria. Netanyahu’s lightning visit to Moscow on Monday follows concern in Israel that the ongoing Russian military buildup will threaten its defence, through fears that Russian-supplied weapons will end up in the hands of Hezbollah, fighting in Syria on Assad’s side, and because it will make it more difficult for Israeli aircraft to strike there. In an unusual move, Netanyahu was accompanied by his defence chief of staff, Lt Gen Gadi Eizenkot, and the head of military intelligence, Maj Gen Herzl Halevi, whose presence – according to Israeli analysts and media – underlined the seriousness of the discussions.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - Israel is very concerned about developments in Syria – especially this new intervention by Russia. Hence Netanyahu’s flying visit to meet Putin with his most senior Israeli military officials. Russia is building a new airbase in Syria for its jets. But interestingly Israel has struck very close to this site on two previous occasions. Once in 2013 and once in 2014. Israel wants the ability to continue to be able to strike Syria if it needs to. But now Russia stands in the way !! In recent months Israel has struck weapons supply facilities for Hezbollah and convoys , as well as personnel directing what it says has been a Hezbollah buildup close to Israel’s northern border. No wonder Israel is concerned about Russian movements. As mentioned already, there is a terrible destruction coming in Syria. It actually sees Israel greatly weakened at the same time.
ISAIAH 17 v 1-5 (NLT) - " Look, the city of Damascus will disappear ! It will become a heap of ruins. The fortified towns of Israel will also be destroyed and the royal power of Damascus will end. In that day Israel’s glory will grow dim ; its robust body will waste away. The whole land will look like a grainfield after the harvesters have gathered the grain. "
