Iran is pulling out of Syria

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I understand that an Israeli Defense official has made the statement that Iran is pulling out of Syria. How serious is that statement?

KT: Well it's a big deal and it certainly appears to be very much some truth to this. The Iranians have been hammered, hammered, hammered again by the Israeli Defense forces, by the air force. The air force has hit their positions and their bases all across Syria not just close to Israel but as far away as you can get, up along the Iraqi border. The Iranians were not expecting that to happen. They thought the Russian's would protect them with their new S-300 and S-400 air defense missiles in Syria. The Russians have not protected them at all and the Israeli's have been able to penetrate those missile defenses.

Now it appears and really does appear to be true that they are starting to pull back some of the Revolutionary Guards forces in Syria. They're being hit very hard by the collapse in oil prices which was coordinated between Russia and Saudi Arabia as you would recall with just about two months ago. That's hitting them very very hard because 80 percent of their income of the government comes from the sale of oil. They're not able to get oil out onto the black market any longer because of US sanctions. So they're being hit very hard.

I would say one more very important thing about this Jimmy is that we're seeing now the pay off for what I think was a very courageous operation carried out by US Special Forces at the direction of President Trump in early January of this year to kill Qasem Soleimani the head of Iran's Quds force there overseas terrorist task force. They're the gorillas on the ground. These are the people who were running the operations in Syria. They no longer have the juice with the Iranian government that they had when Soleimani was alive. So by taking out Soleimani we have also, I won't say we have crippled the Quds force but we have definitely weakened them very seriously. And that's a good thing.

JD: Ken Timmerman with a report on the appearance that Iran is pulling out of Syria.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Ken Timmerman seems to confirm the statement of an Israeli official of the Israeli military community who also said that Iran is pulling out of Syria. At first blush this seems to be good news for the Israeli's. However, if you have read the prophetic scenario for the last days written by Ezekiel, the ancient Jewish prophet, Ezekiel 38:5 you'll know that Iran will be back to join the alignment of Islamic nations who want to destroy the Jewish State. A possible reprieve at this time however Iran will be back.
