(Worthy News) - Israel's David's Sling air defense system made its operational debut Monday, when an interceptor missile was launched as a precaution against ballistic missiles fired within neighboring Syria, the military said.

Projectiles fired as part of internal fighting between the Syrian army and rebel forces in southwest Syria triggered early warning sirens in northern Israel, but were unlikely to have been aimed at Israeli targets, the IDF statement stressed.

An initial investigation into the incident revealed that the missiles had been fired at Israel's direction and the defense system identified their trajectory as being on track to strike within Israeli territory. [ Source: Israel Hayom (Read More...) ]

Matthew 24:6-8 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you aren’t troubled, for all this must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there will be famines, plagues, and earthquakes in various places.  But all these things are the beginning of birth pains.

Luke 21:28  But when these things begin to happen, look up, and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near.
