Israel bombarded Damascus military complex'
When the prophecy about the destruction of Damascus was stated in the Bible, many of us thought it was just a joke. But today, it is happening in our very eyes. It does not matter anymore who could carry out the destruction all we know is that this prophecy came thousands of years back but today it is being fulfilled.
"The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap." Isaiah 17:1 KJV
