[Today’s Prayer] Israel strengthens air strikes in Syria... Is ‘all-out war with Hezbollah’ imminent?


"Targeting weapons factories, air defense networks, etc... Dozens of Iranian Revolutionary Guards and Hezbollah killed."


Israel, which has hinted at the possibility of an all-out war with the pro-Iranian Lebanese armed faction Hezbollah, is intensifying its bombing targeting related military facilities and Iranian weapons supply lines in Syria.


According to Reuters on the 10th (local time), Israel has continued secret military operations in Syria over the past several years, including bombing pro-Iranian militias.


This is because Hezbollah, a major ally of Iran, the archenemy, and a member of the 'Axis of Resistance', a coalition of anti-American and anti-Israel militants in the Middle East, is a key route through which weapons are supplied from Iran.


In particular, on October 7 last year, the Palestinian armed faction Hamas made a surprise attack on Israel, sparking a war in the Gaza Strip, and Hezbollah, which sympathized with this, attacked northern Israel, bordering Lebanon, and such operations became more active.

For example, on the 2nd of this month, a quarry near Aleppo in northwest Syria was targeted by an airstrike by the Israeli military.


Multiple sources said that Hezbollah's missile manufacturing plant hidden in the quarry was destroyed, and 18 people, including IRGC advisor Saeed Avyar, who happened to be there, were killed. He also emphasized that this was the first time an IRGC official had been killed in an Israeli attack since the bombing of the Iranian consulate in Syria last April.

Syrian and Israeli officials said the move was aimed at weakening Hezbollah's capabilities as much as possible before an all-out war.


Syrian government officials believe that this is a move that takes into account the possibility that an all-out war against Hezbollah in southern Lebanon will begin when the ongoing war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip enters a lull.


Reuters pointed out that Israeli officials are also not ruling out the possibility of an escalation of war with Hezbollah, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warning that they are preparing "very strong measures" on the Israel-Lebanon border.


Hezbollah has been sporadically attacking northern Israel over the past eight months by firing rockets from across the border. Israel responded by retaliating and bombing the origin of the attack.


As a result, at least 60,000 residents in northern Israel fled, and at least 462 people were killed in Lebanon, including nearly 300 Hezbollah militants and 90 civilians, AFP reported.

Remember these things, O Jacob, and Israel, for you are my servant; I formed you; you are my servant; O Israel, you will not be forgotten by me. I have blotted out your transgressions like a cloud and your sins like mist; return to me, for I have redeemed you. (Isaiah 44:21-22)

Lord, we hear that Israel is likely to enter into an all-out war with the Lebanese armed faction Hezbollah.


The conflict between Hezbollah, which has been attacking northern Israel for the past eight months, and Israel's response has resulted in the flight of many Israeli residents and casualties in Lebanon.


God of Israel, Lebanon, and Syria, you created them ; we pray that you will not forget them and that you will blot out all their faults and sins like the mist that disappears.


Let their hatred, anger, and revenge toward each other end, and let them become people who return to the Lord. You have redeemed them. Please turn their lives around and make everything that has covered their eyes and hearts with darkness disappear. Our eternal Savior. Please help us become a people who remember God, our Father.


We hope that the peace of God would come through God's power to prevent an all-out war that seems imminent. Please protect the souls who are most affected by the war and are afraid, and allow God's work of salvation to begin. May satan's schemes that lead to mutual hatred and death be destroyed! May they be ruled and reigned by the authority of God!
