Bizarre dust and rain cloud forms a barrier between ISIS and Israel on the Syrian border
…On November 27 two ISIS fighters were killed during an attack on Golan Heights
…Four days later a cloak of dust and rain suddenly appeared on the frontier
A huge cloud of dust and rain blew up along the border between Israel and ISIS last week, sparking online claims that it was a biblical storm. Four days after ISIS fighters attacked an Israeli patrol in the Golan Heights, a plateau in Syria which the Jewish state has occupied since 1967, the bizarre meteorological phenomenon suddenly appeared.
Eyewitnesses said the storm seemed to stop at the boundary and be unable to enter the Golan Heights, which tower above the rest of Syria. Footage of the dust barrier was uploaded onto Facebook. They wrote: ‘A weather phenomenon occurred at 8am Thursday on the other side of the Syrian border, in the same place where ISIS attacked Israel. This strange storm of what appears to be dust, cloud and rain did NOT cross the border fence into Israel. It sat like a barrier between ISIS and Israel.’
Underneath Deborah Van Dam posted: ‘absolutely the divine intervention of God protecting Israel. Amen!’. Anna Rider Pollutro added: ‘That is God. Israel is the Apple of His eye. Those who hate Israel God hates, those who love Israel God loves. He will defend Israel at all times. Nothing can tear her down. When God is for you nothing can stand against you.’ But the biblical bubble was burst by Matt Hingley who wrote: ‘Actually, sorry to be boring, but it’s simply a weather phenomenon.’
Obed Adore added: ‘These dust clouds are normal and common phenomenona across the deserts of the Middle East and Africa.’ He went on to point out that in April 1980, six months before a presidential election, eight US servicemen were killed when a dust storm in the Iranian desert ruined the attempted rescue of 52 US Embassy staff during Operation Eagle Claw. And another cynic, Adam Labaton, pointed out that large areas of northern Israel were recently devastated by forest fores: ‘Has everyone already forgotten the fires? Seriously, last week half the country burnt down….no protection there.’
Eric Crane went even further: ‘It’s a long shelf cloud. Nothing more. Saw it more times than I can count while living in Kansas. Why some of you idiots stretch things for more than they are is the unbelievable. It’s either race, gender, politics, religion, and now you can add weather to the list.’ As the civil war in Syria has raged in the last five years Israelis have worried about a possible threat from ISIS but recently military setbacks have made it less likely, although the November 27 incident shows that some maverick rebels still see Israel as their main target.
