There is an interesting article coming out of Russia this morning that really leaped out at me and that I believe is definitely worth sharing. Are Putin and Russia warning Israel of future consequences regarding their stance with Syria? Is this yet another small warning of the “prophetic wars” yet to come that will directly involve Israel, Syria and Russia? The following is an excerpt from RT News:
What is Israel’s real role in the war in Syria? Can we really believe that it doesn’t want to get involved in the conflict? And how much longer can Israel be Washington’s strong arm in the region while sustaining good relations with Russia? A minor incident took place last week in Syria which few in Washington and London even noticed, but which drew the attention of geopolitical nerds who observe the daily developments in Damascus. Israel conducted an air attack on what it claims was a movement of Hezbollah missiles. In itself, it was hardly remarkable and has happened in the past. In fact, Israel’s attacks have generally been on Hezbollah commanders or the transportation of ordinance. What made this attack remarkable was the response of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Not only did he launch a ballistic missile into Israel, but [he] quickly stated to the media that no more such attacks would be tolerated. The last time, in fact, that Assad issued such stern warnings to Israel was over the Golan Heights in 2013, when he threatened the Israelis with the use of Russian weapons. But now the threat is wider and throws into question both how far Russia will go in supporting Assad, but also to what extent Israel is prepared to risk ruining its own relations with Moscow.
