China, Russia and Iran will hold joint naval drills starting Friday in the Gulf of Oman, Beijing and Tehran said, at a time of heightened tensions since the US withdrew from a landmark nuclear deal with Tehran.
From a prophetical perspective, 2019 is looking to go out with a bang, literally, as three of the biggest end times players are planning joint naval exercises beginning tomorrow. China, Russia and Iran, three of the biggest baddies in the Bible, feel an overwhelming compulsion to pool their resources just as the Bible say they will during the time of Jacob’s trouble.
“Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.” Ezekiel 39:1-3 (KJV)

China, Russia And Iran To Hold Joint Naval Drills

Wu said the Chinese navy would deploy its Xining guided missile destroyer — nicknamed the “carrier killer” for its array of anti-ship and land attack cruise missiles — in the drills. But he did not give details on how many personnel or ships would take part overall.
For Iran, the drill’s purpose was to bolster “international commerce security in the region” and “fighting terrorism and piracy,” said senior armed forces spokesman Brigadier General Aboldazl Shekarchi.
The exercise would “stabilise security” in the region and benefit the world, state news agency IRNA quoted him as saying on Wednesday.
The US reimposed crippling sanctions on Iran in May last year after withdrawing from the international deal aimed at tackling the Islamic Republic’s nuclear programme, prompting Tehran to hit back with countermeasures. Remaining parties to the badly weakened 2015 deal include China, Russia, Britain, France and Germany. China’s foreign minister said the exercises were part of “normal military cooperation” between the three countries.
In June, US President Donald Trump authorised a military strike after Iran shot down a US drone, only to call off the retaliation at the last moment. READ MORE
