Lebanese Shi’ite group Hezbollah on Friday welcomed Russia’s military buildup in Syria in support of common ally President Bashar al-Assad, saying it was the failure of a U.S.-led campaign against Islamic State that had forced Moscow’s hand.

The relevant Scripture:
And the word of the LORD came to me saying, 2 “Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog [modern-day Russia], the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him 3 and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal [all in area of modern-day Russia]. … 5 Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet; 6 Gomer with all its troops; Beth-togarmah from the remote parts of the north with all its troops– many peoples with you. 7 “Be prepared, and prepare yourself, you and all your companies that are assembled about you, and be a guard for them. … 15 “You will come from your place out of the remote parts of the north [Russia is directly north of Israel], you and many peoples [Islamists of the Middle East and Iran] with you, all of them riding on horses, a great assembly and a mighty army; 16 and you will come up against My people Israel like a cloud to cover the land. It shall come about in the last days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me when I am sanctified through you before their eyes, O Gog [the leader of Russia].
How does Shia Iran fit into the picture? Ah, for that, you need read chapter 4 of my book, Islam the Cloak of Antichrist. If you click here, I will send it to you free for the cost of the shipping!

Jesus come quickly.
Hi Jack, Can you say why russia is not targeting Isis.
Thanks and God Bless,
The map looks like Russia is targeting the rebel forces in Western Syria against Assad to prop up Assad. I have read that Russia has said that they will attack both forces Islamist groups but to date, they have only targeted the rebel forces. Here is a very recent article that discusses the point you raise. Read here. Read here. ISIS operates in North and East Syria, and Russia is in the West. They have landed ground troups to attack in the West from what i have read.
