The Fars News Agency reports: “Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmad Davutoglu threatened the western countries that if Syria comes under a NATO attack, it would set fire on the Middle-East, especially Israel.
If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than 6 hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv, Assad said after Davutoglu conveyed the United States’ warning message to him.
He also reiterated that Damascus will also call on Hezbollah in Lebanon to launch such an intensive rocket and missile attack on Israel that the Israeli spy agencies could never imagine.
All these events will happen in three hours, but in the second three hours, Iran will attack the US warships in the Persian Gulf and the US and European interests will be targeted simultaneously, Assad said ” (Syria is about to experience a massive attack that will make their capital, Damascus, a heap of rubble. At that time the Middle East becomes a blaze of fire Isaiah 17:1; Malachi 4:1. See also the next report.)

Iran Says Its New Cruise Missile Can ‘Sink Giant Warships’
Fox News reports: “Iran has begun to mass manufacture a domestically developed cruise missile that reportedly could be used to strike Israel and potentially counter U.S. naval presence in the Persian Gulf.
The missile, called Ghader, which means capable in Farsi, has a 124-mile range and can sink giant warships, Gen. Ahmad Vahidi, the Iranian defense minister, said in an interview on Press TV. He went on to say the missile could be launched quickly and travel at low altitudes.
The exact number of missiles produced is unclear, but they reportedly were delivered to the Revolutionary Guards naval division. The country often makes announcements about new advances in military technology that cannot be independently verified.
Vahidi called the manufacture of the missile a great achievement and denied reports circulating that the missile was not produced in the country, The Jerusalem Post reported.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad unveiled the missile in August, when he said the intention was defensive and to ensure that Iran’s enemies do not dare attack, the AFP reported ” (Iran will eventually be aligned with Russia for World War III – Ezekiel 38:1, 2, 11, 8, and 16. Ezekiel 38:5 mentions Persia as one of Russias allies. Persia changed its name to Iran in 1935.)
