All through the Nuclear accord talks, Iran continued to slander and threaten Israel. Now there is real evidence to make good on their threats. Iran’s intent to purchase S-300 anti-aircraft from Russia is now a reality.
Iran says it will sign deal for Russian air defense system next week
Moscow to deliver upgraded S-300 system next year, Tehran claims; system would likely complicate any attempted air strike
The S-300 is an advanced system for intercepting fighter jets and is intended to protect sensitive ground facilities. It is capable of engaging several jets at the same time and is considered one of the most advanced systems of its kind in the world. The FARS news agency quoted Dehqan as saying that Tehran asked for three batteries of the system and recently added a fourth one to the order.
Iran has created a new command post to “fight Israel.
Iran to arm West Bank Palestinians for new Eastern Front to “efface”Israel
Al Qods commander Gen. Qassem Soleimani, acting on the orders of Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, this week set up a new Iranian command to fight Israel..
It has been dubbed the Eastern Command of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.The Al Qods Brigades, which are the external terrorist arm of the Guards, are organized according to sectors, with commands for Hizballah, the Palestinians, Syria, Iraq and the Gulf.
Their newest sector is the Eastern Command which, our sources report has been assigned as its first task to start handing out weapons, including missiles, to any Palestinian West Bank group willing to receive them. Tehran’s object is to transform the West Bank into a territory hostile to Israel on the model of southern Lebanon which is ruled by the armed Hizballah and the Gaza Strip under the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists.
The Iranian Islamic Revolution Design House has created a video showing the buildup of various soldiers including the Iraqi Shia Badr Organization, IRGC, Lebanese Hezbollah, and Hamas ready to invade Jerusalem. What is amazing about this Islamic video is it shows scenes that look entirely prophetically Biblical in nature.

Six Russian MiG-31 interceptor aircraft land in Damascus to rescue Assad regime
Six Russian MiG-31 Foxhound interceptor aircraft from Moscow landed Tuesday, Aug. 18, at the Mezze Airbase situated in Damascus international airport, They were followed shortly after by giant An-124 Condor transports, which delivered 1,000 Kornet-9M133 third-generation anti-tank guided missiles.
The Russian airlift of advanced weapons for Bashar Assad’s army will last for several days. It betokens Moscow’s intention to keep up its support for the Syrian ruler and counter – by military means if necessary – any secret Iranian diplomatic machinations for terminating the Syria war and with it the Assad regime
U.S. Navy on alert: China, Russia to launch largest-ever joint navy exercise
The Chinese and Russian navies are gearing up for their largest ever joint exercises, slated to begin Thursday in the Pacific with more than 20 ships from the two nations and to feature anti-submarine operations as well as a joint-beach landing. The U.S. Naval Institute’s online news and analysis portal, USNI, noted that the exercises will be the second joint drills between Russia and China in less than a year, following the first “Joint Sea 2015,” which played out in the Mediterranean in April.
Clearly… the prophetic fulfillment of major prophecy is at the door….
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Mat 11:28
