SYRIA - Over 200 Iranian Targets Struck by Israel

Arno Froese

The Israeli army has carried out more than 200 air-strikes against Iranian targets in Syria and fired over 800 missiles and mortar shells over the past year and a half, the IDF has revealed.

Notwithstanding the accuracy of the strikes, Iran is continuing its military buildup in the region, including transferring ballistic missiles across its border into Iraq.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman signaled that Israel could strike suspected Iranian military assets in the region, like it has done in Syria. But the military said that it has not identified the deployment of missiles in Iraq capable of striking Israel.

Hezbollah is nevertheless working to produce precision missiles but has been unable to do so because of IAF strikes against weapons convoys and facilities in Syria.

The IDF also said it has contributed to the defeat of the Islamic State as a territorial entity in the Middle East, but warned that the group’s ideology will remain a threat for generations.

Arno's commentary

Military conflict is nothing new for Israel. For 70 years of their existence, wars begun by neighboring countries, and lately terrorist organizations, have become part of their day-to-day experience. When realizing these facts, one is amazed at the peace that prevails in Israel. Thus, we as Christians are reminded of the words of our Lord: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27). While this is addressed to believers, one senses that the spirit of supernatural peace is a reality in the land of Israel. Millions upon millions of Christian tourists have experienced this while in that land.
