SYRIA - Russian warships in the Caspian Sea have launched dozens of missiles into Syria, sharply escalating a military campaign to shield the regime from rebel forces. Travelling more than 900 miles, the missiles struck 11 targets inside the war-torn country, officials said. In a video apparently showing their launch, bright white lights seared through the sky, trailed by thick plumes of smoke. Moscow's missiles added additional force to airstrikes backing a Syrian regime ground offensive in four locations across the provinces of Hama and Idlib on Wednesday. The deployment of cruise missiles and air strikes marked a significant escalation of the campaign to shield the regime from rebel forces which began in earnest last week. It was the first time operations had been openly coordinated with forces loyal to Bashar al-Assad, one of the Kremlin’s only remaining allies in the Middle East.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - These missiles flew over Iraq and Iran to reach Syria. Why would Russia fire missiles from such a long distance away when they have military jets that could do this based in Syria ? The answer may well be that sea-launched cruise missiles have long been a favourite US weapon of choice in interventions overseas. So there may be an element of Russia demonstrating that it has the full military capability of any other " superpower ".
But all this adds to the increasing tensions between America and Russia. It is yet another complication to a fraught situation. Putin actually released footage of the missiles roaring into the sky on their deathly mission. President Putin praised the Russian military, saying the armed forces were “ well prepared ”. It is interesting he said this. The Bible says that Gog ( Russian leader ) would prepare for himself and for those nations assembled with him eg Iran. The preparation is done. War has begun.
EZEKIEL 38 v 7 - Be thou ( Russian leader – Putin ) prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
