ISAIAH 17 The Burden Of Damascus!

Israel has been carrying out a campaign-between-the-wars since 2013 to prevent Iran and its proxies, including Hezbollah, from obtaining advanced weapons to use against the Jewish state and from entrenching themselves in Syria.
The attacks have three main purposes.
They are:
  1. To diminish Iranian capabilities being shipped to Hezbollah and other Iranian militias working to open a low-intensity military front threatening Israel’s northern border;
  2. To maintain Israel’s freedom of action and air supremacy in its neighborhood and the Middle East in general by minimizing Syrian military capabilities, more specifically anti-aircraft missile sites and their support systems; and
  3. To send a message of deterrence to three main actors in the region: Assad’s regime, Iran and its emissaries, and Russia.
Damascus is the oldest continually-inhabited city in existence. Many prophecy experts think that the sudden destruction of Damascus will be the catalyst that triggers the Ezekiel 38 war, or will occur in conjunction with the Ezekiel 38 war.
These 2600+ year old prophecies have not been fulfilled as of yet. Damascus, though ravaged by the Syrian Civil War, still stands and still has people living there (perhaps Jeremiah 49:23-27 is occurring in our day as a lead up to the full destruction of Damascus). As we’ve see recently in the news, there are several Russian, Iranian, and Syrian military installations in and around Damascus, as well as chemical weapons and the headquarters of several terrorist groups.
Iran is setting up shop in Damascus and openly state their religiously-driven plans to destroy Israel. Airstrikes in 2017 and 2018 by Israel against weapons convoys (gifts from Iran to Hezbollah), and an Iranian built installments near Damascus makes one wonder how close we are to Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38.
We’re not told who destroys Damascus or how it is destroyed, but surrounding verses suggest it’s during conflict with Israel. Recent events suggest it may be a preemptive strike by Israel necessary for her survival!
