UPDATED 9:52 PM EDT -- TRUMP & PENCE CANCEL ATTENDING OPENING OF U.S. EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM
UPDATED 9:20 PM EDT (SEE BOTTOM) -- Very Ominous . . .
Numerous sources on the ground in Syria are reporting "massive" Israeli air power is flying near the Golan Heights / Syria Border.
No word on any penetration of Syrian air space . . . yet.
Developing. Check back for updates which will appear below.
Unclear if this air power is related to a military exercise scheduled today near Lebanon Border.
The Israeli military is on a state of high alert in the country’s north, in readiness for possible retaliation by Iran over alleged Israeli strikes on its sites in Syria. Security forces are preparing for the possibility of attempted infiltration of military bases and communities in the north.
According to the report, security forces are taking steps to mitigate the damage from any such potential attack, fearing that a harsh Iranian strike could force Israel’s hand and lead to an unwanted escalation with Tehran.
VERY OMINOUS WORDS COMING FROM ISRAELI OFFICIALS:
And from the Israeli Defense Force itself:

Wild RUMORS of war with Iran commencing tonight . . . . Totally unconfirmed but there nonetheless.
President Trump and Vice President Pence have CANCELLED their scheduled appearance at the upcoming opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is a __VERY__ bad signal. It means they know something BIG is coming in the Middle East and they cannot be there while it is going on. Think Israel/Iran war.
