Euro News: Iran has warned the U.S. that its bases and aircraft carriers are within range of its missiles after Tehran was blamed for drone attacks on two oil refineries in Saudi Arabia.

Opinion: Did President Trump make a mistake calling back a US strike on Iran over the downing of a US drone on June 20?

“ Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, 6 also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.”
- Persia is modern day Iran
- Cush (eldest son of Noah’s son Ham) is the area of Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia
- Put (Son of Ham) Libya, possibly Tunisia and Algeria

- Many nations with you: possibly additional North African Islamic allies
The Russian-led Gog Magog alliance will be one of the most important events in Israel’s miraculous history. It will mark the end of the diaspora (scattering among the nations) that began in 70 AD, and God will call the true sons and daughters of Jacob home, Ezekiel 39:28; Matthew 24:15-16.
The time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7) is about to begin when God will save His people, Zechariah 12:10; Romans 11:25-27.
