Damascus In Danger Of:
Rebels Encircle City
"The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from [being] a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap."
Jeremiah 49: 24-27
"Damascus is waxed feeble, [and] turneth herself to flee, and fear hath seized on [her]: anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail.
"How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy!
"Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, and all the men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the LORD of hosts."
"And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Benhadad."

(A-O Newswire) - A think-tank has issued a report warning that the Syrian capital city of Damascus is at risk for "total destruction" as rebels encircle the city. In the past few weeks a rebel offensive has enabled rebels to gain control much of the country, particularly northern Syria. Since then, rebels have been advancing towards Damascus, seizing many military bases including key Syrian air force bases while slowly putting a noose around the neck of the Syrian regime.
If history is any indicator, the civil war in Syria has resulted in the near-total destruction of key cities in Syria, such as the largest city, Aleppo and other cities such as Homs. Cities have become rubble. Now with the threat of WMD usage, perhaps in Damascus itself, the city could find itself totally destroyed.
