Friends. the video below is brutal footage of the fighting in Syria. The areas filmed seem to be totally deserted except for fighters. Not only are parts of Damascus ruinous heaps but large parts of Syria itself. The video below is not for the faint of heart and depicts how brutal and cruel war is. I pray that Yeshua returns now to put an end to this wickedness. Click the link below.
More than 20 people, including Syrian officers and enlisted men, were killed and over 100 wounded when a suicide bomber and a car bomb exploded next to a Syrian army checkpoint in the city of Homs on Tuesday afternoon. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.
A Syrian army force under the command of Iranian and Russian officers has captured Sheikh Maskin, a key southern town near the Israeli border, thereby cutting off rebel groups east of Deraa from those deployed to the west of the town. Sheikh Maskin is the key to controlling the southern hub of the roads leading to the Jebel Druze town of Suwaida, the Golan town of Quneitra and Damascus. The town fell after Russian air strikes were resumed following an interruption caused by stormy weather.
Against vehement Turkish objections, the Russians insist on the Kurds being seated at the Syrian political talks scheduled to open in Geneva Friday. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Tuesday that the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party, logo above, plays an important role in fighting ISIS and is an essential part of any political settlement in Syria. The talks are scheduled to last for six months, but discussions of who should take part are still continuing. The UN has said its first priorities were to bring about a broad ceasefire, stop ISIS and increase humanitarian aid.
