The general tapped to take over as top U.S. commander in the Middle East is warning U.S. senators that further Russian aggression against Ukraine can create broader instability in Syria for the Middle East.
General Erik Kurilla, when testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee after being selected as top U.S. commander in the Middle East, said that there was potential for repercussions in the Middle East from a further Russian invasion of Ukraine.
He said that it could spill over into Syria, who shares a border with northern Israel and is where Russia already has military bases and troops.
He said that “If Russia does invade Ukraine they would not hesitate to be able to act as a spoiler in Syria as well,” meaning that Russia’s aggression would spill over into the Middle East which could then impact Israel.
Kurilla is a combat-hardened military officer who has extensive experience in both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
He graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point and then served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, commanding conventional and special operations forces. He also commanded a Stryker battalion in Iraq in 2004, when he was shot and wounded.
Kurilla, who is currently the commander of the 18th Airborne Corps, told the committee that after the hearing he was deploying to Germany as part of the U.S. effort to reassure allies concerned about Russia’s military build-up along Ukraine’s borders.
When he was asked by the senators about the potential for repercussions in the Middle East of a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine, Kurilla said he believes that it could spill over into Syria, where Russia already has military bases and troops.
The Biblical prophecies (Ezekiel 38, Ezekiel 39, Matthew 24) foretell of wars and rumors of wars, and that Magog Russia will take military action that ultimately affects Israel in the Last Days signaling we are nearing the end of this age and the coming of Jesus Christ.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
