Default Suicide blast kills many in Damascus

Remember Scripture tells us Damascus will be totally destroyed.

It is also where the next pope, Peter the Roman will be taken after he is captured and where he will be blinded by having his eyes gouged out, as told in Scripture.

It is very interesting to observe events there

Default Syria crisis: Houla 'massacre leaves 90 dead'

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-18216176
Please keep Syria and it's people in our daily prayers





Leana Hosea BBC News
The "massacre" video which has emerged from Houla bears the sound of a man screaming:

"These are all children! Watch, you dogs, you Arabs, you animals - look at these children, watch, just watch!"

On a bedroom floor dozens of little children lie dead, their arms and legs strewn over one another. Many of their eyes are still open, bearing a look of shock and fright. They are all covered with blood and obviously suffered terrible deaths.

A girl, who is perhaps seven years old, wearing a headscarf and pink diamonte belt, lies face to face in death with a much younger boy.

Another little boy in a yellow jumper lies with his arms stretched out, almost cradling the head of the girl next to him. Blood covers both their faces and soaks their hair.

People off camera are shouting: "Oh God, oh God, oh God."

Default UN confirms new killings in Syria days after Houla

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-18271184

"Observers from the UN have confirmed the discovery of 13 shooting victims in Syria as international outrage continues after the Houla massacre.

The men's bodies were found near the eastern city of Deir al-Zour, with their hands tied behind their backs, some apparently shot in the head.

UN mission chief Maj Gen Robert Mood said he was "deeply disturbed" by the "appalling and inexcusable act"."

"The US ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, has said a further escalation of the conflict in Syria is the likeliest scenario now, with it spreading to other countries in the region. She was speaking after a closed meeting of the UN Security Council in New York.

Her British counterpart, Mark Lyall-Grant, said that a third element, including jihadists, was now active in Syria."

Remember that Scripture tells us that Damascus will be destroyed
The scene is being set
