JERUSALEM, Jan 11 (Reuters) - The Israeli army said troops in the Golan Heights came under small arms fire from Syria on Sunday and that, although no one was hurt, it had complained to the United Nations force that monitors the frontier area.
"In the afternoon, there were a number of bullets fired from Syria at an Israeli army force doing engineering work near the fence," an army spokesman said. "No one was hurt but a vehicle was damaged. Forces in the field are examining the incident and a complaint was sent to UNDOF which sent a team there. The circumstances of the incident are still unclear."
2) The War of Gog and Magog
The next event on God’s prophetic timeline is the War of Gog and Magog. The leader of Russia will form a military coalition which includes the nations Iran, Libya, Ethiopia, and Turkey, and he will lead them against the nation of Israel.
“Therefore, son of man, prophesy against Gog. Give him this message from the Sovereign Lord: When my people are living in peace in their land, then you will rouse yourself. You will come from your homeland in the distant north with your vast cavalry and your mighty army, and you will cover the land like a cloud. This will happen in the distant future. I will bring you against my land as everyone watches, and my holiness will be displayed by what happens to you. Then all the nations will know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 38:14-16 (NLT)
God will display His glory to all the nations of the world by personally destroying this Russian military coalition. This will happen either at the beginning of, or sometime before, the tribulation. How do we know? Because God tells us the nation of Israel will use the leftover implements of this war as fuel for seven years:
“Then the people in the towns of Israel will go out and pick up your small and large shields, bows and arrows, javelins and spears, and they will use them for fuel. There will be enough to last them seven years!” Ezekiel 39:9 (NLT)

In the War of Ezekiel 38-39, what part does Syria play? Is Syria part of Gog-Magog?

Well, you didn't think Syria moved 10-20K troops into Lebanon for nothing, did you???

No surprise there! Israel is always getting shot at by those around them.
You think they'd have the good sense to strike back!
