Will the Russians be the party responsible for fulfilling Isaiah 17:1 in Bible prophecy? Only time will tell.
Nawa is a city of 60,000 residents in southern Syria, west of the city of Darra and 15 kilometers east of the Israel-Syria border on the Golan. That is to say, Nawa was a Syrian city, but it does not exist anymore.
DEBKAfile’s military sources report that from Saturday until Monday, November 21-23, Russian bombers wiped the city off the face of the earth. All that remains are ruins. The streets are full of bodies of people and animals that nobody bothers to remove. Almost nobody is left in the abandoned city, as those who were able to flee have done so, and the unknown number of people who remained in Nawa were killled in the Russian bombing.
Another Syrian city that the Russian air force has been systematically destroying during the last few days is Sheikh Maskin, which has 25,000 residents and is located near the border with Israel.
At the pace that the Russians are operating, it can be assumed that they will finish wiping the city off the face of the earth by Tuesday or Wednesday.
