Assad may be critically injured or dead

Prophecy Sign:  The coming Middle-East Wars - Syria

Since the last unsubstantiated reports of the assassination of Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad which came out over a week ago, we've have been searching through many news sites looking for any articles which indicate that the Syria President is alive and well.  We have found none, nothing to indicate Assad is at least in hiding somewhere, but still holding onto power in war torn Syria.

Today we have a couple more unsubstantiated reports which say that Assad is either dead or severely wounded and near death.  We have no idea of the veracity of these reports, so we make no pretence about their believability and reliability.  Take them for what they are worth.

Should the reports be true however, it could set the potential for a major push by the Syrian rebels to once and for all take over Syria and the city of Damascus, which is coming every closer to the heart of the battle, (see article below).  Another more threatening possibility is that if Assad has been killed and his followers follow through with one of his recent commands, it could mean war with Israel.  In a report which came out earlier this year, it was reported that Assad told his commanders to launch ballistic missiles at Israel should he, (Assad), be killed by rebels.  Already, there have been reports that Israel and Syria have traded fire across the disputed border in the Golan Heights.

The situation in the Middle-East, like that of the Korean peninsula, is becoming very perilous with the prospects of a full-scale war erupting at any time.  Should this happen, we already know the fate of Syria and Damascus as both the prophets Isaiah, (Isaiah 17), and Jeremiah foretold that Damascus would be destroyed in the last days.

Damascus has become feeble, she has turned to flee and panic has gripped her; anguish and pain have seized her, pain like that of a woman in labor. Why has the city of renown not been abandoned, the town in which I delight? Surely, her young men will fall in the streets; all her soldiers will be silenced in that day,” declares the Lord Almighty. “I will set fire to the walls of Damascus; it will consume the fortresses of Ben-Hadad.” Jeremiah 49:24-27 NIV

Assad may be critically injured or dead
This is not a news story. It is purely rumour and speculation; please do not think I am reporting this as fact. The reason I am writing this, is because I have no reason to believe that my sources have ulterior motives in telling me what they have told me. The story sounds very similar to a rumour that is being floated by the Free Syrian Army, so for all I know, this is just standard psy-ops and propaganda. Nevertheless, I thought you'd be interested. Earlier today, I was informed by a connection that sources in Damascus, close to Bashar al-Assad's regime, are talking about the dictator's situation as if he was mortally wounded or even dead. Here's what I was told:

Bashar al-Assad is dead says FSA, gives him 12 hours to show up to deny
The Free Syrian Army announced Saturday, March 30, 2013 through a press of one of its leaders called Abu Ali Khabia the death of President Bashar al-Assad. According to the statement read by Abu Ali Khabiya, Bashar al-Assad was killed in collaboration with the Iranian officers belonging to his bodyguard. It should be recalled that last weekend a rumor about the death of Bashar al-Assad quickly around the world, backed by the Arab press, Israeli and French. To show their good faith, the head of Abu Ali Khabia  and his troops are challenging Bashar Bashar, if living, to show up in the next 12 hours. In making the announcement, Abu Ali Khabia called the regular army to lay down their arms and surrender to the Free Syrian Army before it is too late.

Syria ordered to attack Israel if Assad falls - January 14' 2013
Embattled Syrian dictator Bashar Assad has ordered his military chiefs to launch ballistic missiles at Israel if he is killed by rebel forces, according to sources in Damascus cited by Israeli media this week. The online newspaper Inyan Merkazi reported that Assad met with his top generals recently to express concerns that he could be taken out by advanced American missiles recently provided to rebel forces, or by a violent mob similar to the one that violently murdered former Libyan dictator Muamar Gaddafi. Should either of those scenarios become reality, Assad reportedly told the generals to unleash Syria's considerable missile arsenal on Israel and Egypt.

Israel, Syrians, trade fire across ceasefire line
An Israeli tank fired into Syrian territory on Tuesday night after Syrian mortar and small-arms fire hit the Israeli-occupied sector of the Golan Heights the military said.  An Israeli army statement said troops “returned precise fire at the source and reported a direct hit.”  In response to a query from AFP a spokeswoman said it was an Israeli tank that returned fire. She did not give further details.  There were no Israeli casualties from the Syrian fire, the army said.  A spokeswoman said the incidents were reported to U.N. ceasefire monitors in the area.  Last week Israeli troops on the strategic plateau fired an Israeli-made Tamuz anti-tank missile at a Syrian army post after coming under fire twice in 12 hours.

Damascus violence forces even most resolute Syrians to flee
A new exodus is flowing from Syria as fighting edges closer to the heart of Damascus - those who swore they would never flee are selling their belongings to escape a battle now raging on their doorsteps. Many Syrians in the capital had long asserted that the uprising-turned-civil war would not breach the city center. Others insisted they would stay, no matter the consequences. But fear has begun to grip even the most resolute residents. For many the tipping point was a hail of mortar bombs and rockets that shook Damascus for several days last month as rebels and troops loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad brought tit-for-tat bombardments to the core of the capital.
