Official Tells VOA Iran Believed Behind Attack on US Troops in Syria

October 26, 2021

Iran is believed to be behind a drone attack last week at the al-Tanf military outpost in southern Syria where American troops are based, two U.S. officials told VOA.

The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Iranian drones were used in the attack, but they were not launched from Iran. The drones were carrying explosives that caused damage to buildings but no injuries or deaths.

Five drones carried out the attack, according to one of the officials.

U.S. and international troops at al-Tanf have been training Syrians to counter Islamic State militants.

The base sits on a major road that links Baghdad, Iraq, to Damascus, Syria, close to where the borders of Jordan, Iraq and Syria converge. U.S. officials say Iran could use the route to establish a continuous “land bridge” from Tehran to the Mediterranean.

Pentagon press secretary John Kirby declined to “get into attribution” when asked by VOA who was responsible for the attack.

“We have seen these kinds of attacks in the past from Shia militia groups, which we know are backed and supported by Iran, but I’m not going to talk specifics,” he told reporters at the Pentagon press briefing Monday.

“It was complex. It was deliberate,” he added.

Meanwhile the Biden administration says international patience with Iran’s reluctance to reenter nuclear talks is “wearing thin.” Robert Malley, U.S. special envoy for Iran, said the United States and its partners are considering alternatives to a diplomatic path but that any decision about future options will depend on Iran’s actions.

Iran is playing a dangerous game by inciting the USA this way.

I have long believed that Iran is a threat that will one day be ‘neutralized,’ as I believe it will overplay its hand. The USA may assist Israel in its efforts against Iran. While the USA could suffer damage, Iran could really be devastated (cf. Jeremiah 49:34-38)–but this could lead to a prophesied temporal peace deal.

While the Biden administration says international patience with Iran’s reluctance to reenter nuclear talks is “wearing thin,” so is Iran’s patience with the USA.

Notice something from my book Biden-Harris: Prophecies and Destruction related to Iran:

Despite its posturing and relative military strength, Iran will be somehow effectively neutralized (cf. Ezekiel 32:24). This could perhaps be from an attack involving Israel and/or internal civil unrest — this could also include electromagnetic (EMP) or similar weapons used against Iran (Jeremiah 49:34-39).

It is of prophetic interest to note that the small nation of Israel is prophesied to one day be attacked by some that seem to have connection to Iran and its ally Syria (Isaiah 22:1-14). …

Iran may decide to strike out against Israel, and likely Jerusalem (cf. Isaiah 22:7-8) if it determines that it should. If it is frustrated with the Biden-Harris Administration policies or delays, that may very well be a factor in it taking prophesied military action.

Iran has weapons that can cause damage. Furthermore, the U.S.A. itself, as well as the State of Israel, are vulnerable to EMP type attacks and even items such as biological weapons, chemical weapons, terrorism, nuclear weapons, dirty bombs, etc. because of a conflict involving Iran, Syria, and/or others.

But should this attack occur, this would NOT be the final destruction of the U.S.A. Prophetically, Iran would not end up faring well (cf. Ezekiel 32:24-25). (Thiel B. Biden-Harris: Prophecies and Destruction. Nazarene Books, January 2021)

Enough delays in the process, or a result it does not like, may well lead Iran to conclude that a regional war is the best way to deal with domestic and international pressures.

Such a war is consistent with prophesies such as are in Isaiah 22–and may be a factor leading to the ‘peace deal’ of Daniel 9:27.

Furthermore, a few weeks ago, an Iranian foreign ministry spokesman named Saeed Khatibzadeh declared “the war with Israel has already begun.” (see ZH: Iran Says “War With Israel Has Already Begun” Amid Fresh Covert Attacks; WND: Iran promotes Kamala’s approval of student accusing Israel of ‘genocide’).

Iran vows ‘shocking’ response to any Israeli attack

October 25, 2021

The secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said on Sunday that Iran’s response to any Israeli attack would be “shocking,” and cost the Jewish state “tens of thousands of billions.”
“Instead of allocating 1.5 billion dollars budget for atrocities against #Iran, the Zionist regime should focus on providing tens of thousands of billion dollars funding to repair the damage that is going to be caused by Iran’s shocking response,” tweeted Ali Shamkhani.

He posted the message on his Twitter account in English, Hebrew, Arabic and Farsi.

Shamkhani was responding to reports last week that Israel has approved $1.5 billion for a possible attack on Iran’s nuclear program.

Could Iran be prophesied to cause massive damage to the tiny state of Israel?

Yes. The Bible tells of damage coming to Judah (the modern nation of Israel) from a power like Iran:

5 For it is a day of trouble and treading down and perplexity By the Lord God of hosts In the Valley of Vision — Breaking down the walls And of crying to the mountain. 6 Elam bore the quiver With chariots of men and horsemen, And Kir uncovered the shield. 7 It shall come to pass that your choicest valleys Shall be full of chariots,And the horsemen shall set themselves in array at the gate.8 He removed the protection of Judah. You looked in that day to the armor of the House of the Forest; 9 You also saw the damage to the city of David, That it was great; And you gathered together the waters of the lower pool. 10 You numbered the houses of Jerusalem, And the houses you broke down To fortify the wall. (Isaiah 22:51-9)

Elam looks to be a reference to at least some in Iran and the Bible ties Syrians to Kir in several places (cf. Amos 1:5, 9:7; 2 Kings 16:). Iran is Syria’s closest ally.

Isaiah 22 shows, Israel could very well be damaged by Iran before the the Great Tribulation begins.

Would it strike back?

Undoubtedly, yes.

Could it cause massive damage to Iran?


In view of that, consider also the following prophecy:

34 The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying, 35 “Thus says the Lord of hosts:

‘Behold, I will break the bow of Elam,
The foremost of their might.
36 Against Elam I will bring the four winds
From the four quarters of heaven,
And scatter them toward all those winds;
There shall be no nations where the outcasts of Elam will not go.
37 For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies
And before those who seek their life.
I will bring disaster upon them,
My fierce anger,’ says the Lord;
‘And I will send the sword after them
Until I have consumed them.
38 I will set My throne in Elam,
And will destroy from there the king and the princes,’ says the Lord. (Jeremiah 49:34-38)

Iran, Syria, and Israel may one day be in a major regional war in the future. Damage will be done to multiple parties.

We are getting much closer to that time.
