Turkey planning to attack Tell Rifaat
Tell Rifaat is Arpad mentioned in Jeremiah 49:23
By Craig C. White
The Prophet Jeremiah tells us that just before the destruction of Damascus the northwestern Syrian towns of Hamah and Tell Rifaat will hear reports of a coming invasion. The modern day town of Tell Rifaat is identified as “Arpad” in Jeremiah 49:23.
Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.
Reports are just now surfacing of Turkey’s intentions to attack Tell Rifaat very soon.
Following are excerpts from an article on Al Monitor dated May 1, 2017 US move to protect YPG could push Turkey into Russia’s arms
A commander from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the YPG-led army uniting Arabs and Kurds trained by the United States to fight IS, told Al-Monitor that a Turkish play for Tal Rifaat was afoot and that Russian military advisers in Syria had warned them of an “imminent” Turkish attack.
Erdogan declared, “I could come unexpectedly, at any time.”
The Turkish Army is very likely to swarm into northwestern Syria at Hamah and Tell Rifaat and then march southward to besiege Damascus.
