The IDF in Israel launched rare airstrikes into Lebanon early Friday morning, just hours after it struck opposition targets in the Gaza Strip.
Think about all the things happening at the same time in the Middle East right now. In Jerusalem, Israel, you have Jews celebrating Passover, Unleavened Bread and First Fruits at the Western Wall, you have Muslims celebrating Ramadan on the Temple Mount mosque, and you have Christians wandering the old streets celebrating all the events associated with the greatest event in human history, the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. On top of that, you have missiles being fired at Israel from Lebanon and the Gaza Strip with Israel answering back with airstrikes. There you go, prophecy lovers, is your plate getting full enough yet? If Israel is the timeclock, it’s ticking, baby!
“Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars.” Zechariah 11:1 (KJB)
The Bible tells us that Israel is going to get pounded after the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church takes place, with Isaiah 28:14-22 (KJB) showing us the covenant they will make with Death and Hell in the form of the Antichrist confirming the Abraham Accords covenant and thus guaranteeing thier safety for a time, times and the dividing of time. We will be keeping a close eye on all of it as events continue to develop and unfold over the weekend? What’s that, you say? Sunday morning rapture? This just might be the year!
Israel launches rare airstrikes in Lebanon following violence at Jerusalem holy site
FROM FOX NEWS: Both series of attacks were in retaliation after Palestinian militants in Gaza fired rockets into southern Israel. Later, another volley of rockets was fired from Lebanon into Northern Israel. The rocket fire further escalated from initial violence at a Jerusalem holy site this week. The Israeli military did not provide information about its intended targets in Lebanon but said it targeted tunnels and weapon sites in the Gaza Strip.
A Lebanese TV station reported explosions in the southern port city of Tyre. The town is located about 20 miles from Israel’s northern border.
During a briefing Friday morning, IDF International Spokesperson Lt. Col Richard Hecht said the airstrikes in Lebanon mostly landed in the Rashidieh area, and the village of Al-Kalila, the area where the rockets were launched from on Thursday.
No casualties were reported on the Lebanese side, he clarified. Hecht also said Israel is hoping for a peaceful day as worshipers gather in Jerusalem.
“All eyes on Jerusalem and we’re hoping for a quiet day of prayers,” he said. “Nobody wants an escalation right now.”
The spokesperson said that “quiet will be answered with quiet” and that “nothing has happened since the last hour.”
Hecht also provided a synopsis of the rocket fire from Gaza, specifying 44 rockets had been fired into Southern Israel from Gaza.
One of the rockets struck a house in Sderot while a woman and her daughter were inside. They were not injured, he said. Eight of the rockets were intercepted by the IDF’s missile defense system, while 14 fell in an open area, 12 fell into the sea, and nine fell in the Gaza Strip.
He said the Israeli Air Force retaliated with further attacks on Hamas targets and infrastructure in the Gaza Strip, including a shaft for an underground site to construct arms, three other weapon workshops, and a terror tunnel route.
The Israeli military did not provide any further details. The current round of violence began Wednesday during an incident at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City, where hundreds of worshipers gathered. READ MORE
