Israeli war planes have flown over Syrian President Bashar Assad's palace as a warning

The Israeli war plane fly over of Syrian President Bashar Assad's palace was a warning to the Syrian leader to warn Damascus against supporting Palestinian fighters who abducted the Israeli soldier.

An Israeli army spokesman said the low-level flights by the Israeli war plans were because the Syrian leadership supports and harbors terrorist leaders. Among them the Damascus based Hamas leader, Khaled Mashaal, who Israeli officials say is masterminding the Gaza conflict. Syrian officials say the Israeli fly over is an aggressive act and a provocation.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

By targeting the palace of Syrian President Bashar Assad, the Israeli Defense Force warned the Syrians to stop using surrogate terror groups to attack the Jewish state, a news story that seems to be a page out of Bible prophecy for the Last Days. Israeli intel reports that Hamas leader, Khaled Mashaal, based in Damascus is the mastermind of the Hamas-led military actions in the Gaza Strip.

An Israeli cabinet member said that Mashaal is the target of an assassination that could take this terrorist leader off the scene in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The fact that Syria has harbored and supported Mashaal for over twenty years and that the Syrian government itself has a hand in this conflict is truly a page out of Bible prophecy.

The ancient Jewish prophet Daniel wrote of Syria, referred to as the King of the North in Daniel 11:40, which reveals that this Middle Eastern Arab nation will be the first of the Middle Eastern nations to start aggression that they hope will lead to Israel's destruction. Actually, Syria is only one of a number of Arab and Islamic Middle Eastern nations that will align themselves against Israel; howbeit, they are the first to make a move. This prophesied aggressive military action by Syria begins at the first of the seven year Tribulation Period.

Syria's support for the Hamas leadership and their terrorism is indeed a page out of Bible prophecy that will be fulfilled.
