Russia is planning to expand its airbase in Syria into a permanent military facility, a senior senator said Thursday. Russia’s Hmeimim airbase outside the Syrian coastal city of Latakia currently houses warplanes used in Moscow’s bombing campaign in support of long-time ally Bashar al-Assad.
“After its legal status is agreed upon, Hmeimim will become a Russian military base. The appropriate infrastructure will be built and our servicemen will live in worthy conditions,” Frants Klintsevich, the deputy head of Russia’s senate committee for defence, told Izvestia newspaper.
This development sends chills up and down the spin of those familiar with what the Bible prophesies for the near future. Scripture specifically foretells that Russia will invade Israel during the coming Battle of Armageddon. Now, the preparations are being made!
