The Israeli Border with Syria

US President Donald Trump’s recent announcement of his intention to withdraw all 2,000 American troops from Syria has many speculating about the future of Israel’s northern border. It is clear that the wicked Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and his Russian, Iranian, and Turkish allies have gotten the upper hand in Syria and the question is how can and should the rest of the world be involved now. One area that the Syrian president has set his sights on is the Syrian part of the Golan. As this area along Israel’s northern border, any effort by Assad to attack rebels there could mean Russian planes flying all too close to sovereign Israeli airspace and perhaps triggering sirens in Israel due to the clashes. Assad has already set up military infrastructure in the area that violates agreements that have been in place since the Yom Kippur War. Pray with us that this situation doesn’t worsen for Israel and that the world will not pull back from coming to the help of the millions of Syrians being terrorized by Assad’s regime.
