Israel is updating its defense missile shield, and rumors of war preparation from all sides abound. US Secretary Clinton is in Turkey for military consolations regarding Syria. It is not difficult to come to the conclusion a Middle East military campaign is underway. When it transpires remains to be seen, but the prevailing attitude among many is September through October. Just today, Israel was bombarded with rockets from Gaza and Israel in turn used tank guns against terrorists in the South. Egypt's decision to open up the Gaza border several days ago is already having a negative effect. Watch this development because if Egypt is consulting with Russia and Iran, then Egypt could create chaos in the South as Iran moves in though Syria to the North with Russia's support. The fate of Damascus could be at hand.
Russia sent marines into Syria and Iran is supposed to have elite soldiers who arrived in Syria some days ago. Could the campaign be in its early stages? It is hard to tell. I do know Russia does not want Israel to update its missile shield because it will make it much harder to take out Israel in any future war. These things are not done without consultations from each of the players. Egypt will not allow anything to happen if it is not done in a much bigger plan with Russia, Iran, and to some respects to Turkey. Whether today's skirmish in Southern Israel is planned or not remains to be seen, but if it is, then watch the northern border. Gog, the Demon of old, may be ready to be hooked by the Lord for the battle ahead.
I will post any developments through Twitter or on the left side of the webpage as news happens. Also, I may post small, concise commentaries if need be. Time will tell, but it may be the time for some great battles ahead.
Arab news outlets reported Sunday that 15 Egyptian policemen were killed in an armed attack on a police station in north Sinai Peninsula at a security checkpoint in Rafah.
The gunmen reportedly took control of two Egyptian armored vehicles using RPG missiles and explosives. One of the vehicles blew up near the Kerem Shalom border crossing, while the other one managed to infiltrate into Israel. The gunmen fired tank shells toward Israeli forces stationed at the border, but IAF aircraft managed to hit the armored vehicle.
