Report: Hezbollah Preparing for 'Battle for Damascus'

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East wars - Damascus

The young men of Damascus may be soon falling in the streets as it has been reported that Hezbollah is gearing up for an all-out 'battle for Damascus'.  Meanwhile Israel launched another military strike on some targets located in and near Damascus. Keep in mind that Syria still has intact its chemical weapons arsenal. Negotiations only revolved around the Syrian chemical stockpiles that can be turned into weapons. Future strikes on Damascus may be in the offing if Israel perceives those weapons to be a threat, or look to be in peril of falling into the hands of the likes of Hezbollah.

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. Jeremiah 49:24-26 NIV

Report: Hezbollah Preparing for 'Battle for Damascus'
Hezbollah is enlisting 15,000 fighters for what it is calling the “battle for Damascus,” Reshet Bet reports. The report is based on information from sources in the Syrian opposition. Hezbollah has been heavily involved in fighting alongside Syrian President Bashar Assad as he battles opposition groups. Hezbollah recently claimed to have taken the decision to withdraw 1,200 of its troops from Syria and to focus on security inLebanon, where the group’s strongholds have been targeted in terror attacks. However, this latest reports suggests the purported withdrawal may have been a diversion aimed at lulling the group’s opponents in Syria into a false sense of security, as well as an attempt to offset growing dissent against the group back in Lebanon.

US official confirms Israel struck Syrian airbase
While Israel has remained tight-lipped over an alleged strike in Syria, an Obama administration official confirmed on Thursday that Israeli warplanes had in fact attacked an airbase in Latakia on Wednesday. The target was “missiles and related equipment” the Israeli government assessed might be transferred to the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah ,the report said. A security official told AP that the attack occurred in the Syrian port city of Latakia and that the target was Russian-made SA-125 missiles.
Earlier Thursday, on the heels of reports that the airbase had contained advanced, Russian-made anti-aircraft missiles, Al-Arabiya reported that Israel had attacked not one, but two targets in the civil war-torn country. Al-Arabiya’s report said two targets had been hit in Syria on Wednesday night – not just the Latakia air defense base, but a target in Damascus as well. Both targets were said to have contained shipments of Russian SA-8 anti-aircraft missiles meant for Hezbollah, which were reportedly completely destroyed.
