Will Russia play a role in the destruction of Damascus to protect their interest from invading forces – ISIS? Regardless of whether they do or not, this is a very heavy movement on the Russian front to protect the Assad regime and oil.
Russian submarine with 20 ICBMs and 200 nuclear warheads is sailing to Syria
The world’s largest submarine, the Dmitri Donskoy (TK-208), Nato-coded Typhoon, has set sail for the Mediterranean and is destined for the Syrian coast, debkafile reports exclusively from its military and intelligence sources. Aboard the sub are 20 Bulava (NATO-code SS-N-30) intercontinental ballistic missiles with an estimated up to 200 nuclear warheads. Each missile, with a reported range of 10,000km, carries 6-10 MIRV nuclear warheads.
The Russian sub set sail from its North Sea base on Sept. 4, escorted by two anti-sub warfare ships. Their arrival at destination in 10 days time (September 14th) will top up the new Russian military deployment in Syria.
ISIS continues to gain ground in Syria
ISIS seizes last major Syrian oilfield
ISIS fighters are reported to have seized the Jazal field, Syria’s last major oil field, in battles over the vast central desert zone east of Homs. Casualties are reported on both sides. The Syrian army did not mention Jazal but claimed to have repulsed an attack in this area, killing 25 fighters including non-Syrian jihadists.
Rebel sources said: “The regime has lost the last oilfield in Syria.”
The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. Isa 17:1
Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations (ISIS is composed of many nations and there are multiple other terrorist groups involved in the Syrian Civil War), that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters:(when Damascus falls to the opposition) but God shall rebuke them (God can use one enemy to defeat another enemy), and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind. And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not (Only a massive earthquake, meteor, or nuclear warhead can eliminate a city overnight). This is the portion of them that spoil us (Israel), and the lot of them that rob us (Israel). Isa. 17:12-14
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. Isa 40:8
