The IDF hit almost all of Iran’s infrastructure in Syria, said Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman in Herzliya on Thursday, hours after Israel and Iran exchanged a barrage of missiles and airstrikes. Then he said that peace could only come with the coming of the Messiah.
“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.” Revelation 1:7 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: It was stunning watching Iran attack Israel from Syria barely one day after President Trump announced that the United States was pulling out of the Iran Nuclear treaty negotiated by Barack Obama. It was electrifying watching Israel respond to Iran’s attack with the full shock-and-awe of the Israeli Air Force. But it was jaw-dropping reading this morning that Israeli Defense Minister, Avigdor Liberman, when asked about the prospects for peace in the Middle East firmly and resolutely stated that peace can only come with the coming of the promised Jewish Messiah. Pray for Israel and the Jewish people as they approach all the coming turmoil surrounding regathered Israel’s 70th anniversary on May 14th. Pray that God will do a mighty work there in the coming time of Jacob’s trouble that will take place immediately after the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church.

Early Thursday morning, Iran fired 20 rockets on Israel. Four were shot down by Iron Dome and the other 16 landed in Syrian territory. The IDF responded with air strikes against around 50 Iranian military training sites, Iranian Revolution Guard Corps intelligence collection and logistics, rocket firing positions, airfield positions and weapons storage facilities.
Liberman said that not a single Israeli civilian or piece of Israeli property was harmed. “Last night, Iran tried to attack Israeli sovereign territory and failed,” he said. The defense minister also threatened Iran going forward, stating that “if Iran hits us with rain [a small number of rockets] – we will hit them with a deluge [of airstrikes].”
“Peace in the Middle East will come with the coming of the Messiah,” he said. “There is no peace in the Middle East,” he continued. “Whoever talks about that in this region is confused about their geography.” source
In a dramatic escalation of Israeli-Iranian tensions, Israel struck dozens of Iranian targets in Syria after 20 rockets were fired towards Israel’s front defensive line in the Golan Heights early Thursday morning.
“Last night the Quds Force carried out an attack, a most serious attempt to attack Israel,” Manelis said.
However, he said, the Iranians were not able to achieve their objective. “Some 20 rockets were fired, and not one fell in Israeli territory,” he said. “Iron Dome intercepted the rockets. There are no injuries and no damage was caused to IDF positions.”
“This is an achievement for the Israeli operation that aimed to disrupt and prevent the other side’s achievement of their goals, and we can sum this up as a success,” Manelis said. “It was impudence on the part of the Quds Force and Qassem Soleimani.”
“Last night, the IDF conducted dozens of strikes against Iranian targets in Syria. This is the largest Israeli strike in decades. Dozens of targets belonging to the Iranians Quds Force were struck, including intelligence and logistics centers, camps, weapons depots, listening posts and more. We struck the vehicle that launched the rockets against Israel,” the IDF spokesman said.
“We consider the Syrians responsible for what happens in Syria, and it will take a long time for the Iranians to rebuild the infrastructure that was hit,” Manelis said. “We struck all the planned targets, and the person responsible for this incident is Qassem Soleimani.”
Russia was informed prior to the Israeli operation, the IDF spokesperson said. “We have acted against Iranian ticking time bombs several times, and there were Iranians involved in the command and control of the rocket firing.” source
