The Group of Seven (G7) industrialized nations will be joined by five Sunni Arab nations: Turkey, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Jordan and Qatar. For this reason Eschatology Today is going to coin the phrase "The Ezekiel Summit" for this and all future G7 Summits with their Sunni Arab allies.
The Ezekiel Summit constitutes the first iteration of the alliance found in Ezekiel 38:13 literally translated from the Hebrew Scripture Shĕba' Dĕdan cachar Tarshiysh kĕphiyr as "Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish and all their young lions..." It is not too far or a stretch to at least consider that these 12 nations may a few years become the 10 nations among whom the "little horn" emerges according to the angel Gabriel in Daniel in Daniel 7, as well as the "Ten Toes" of the two feet of the two legs discussed in Daniel 2.
We will be very keen to learn what comes from The Ezekiel Summit as these 12 nations line up against Russia and Iran in a fight over Syria. In this we have most of the nation state actors found in the entire host of pre-70th Week prophecies, and with Israel likely to bear a heavy burden in the eruption of hostilities per Isaiah 17:4-6.
More updates to come...
10 April 2017: The big and as yet unreported news, unreported because no one outside of the United States Government has yet made this public information, is the Obama Administration kept stone cold quiet (this is "flexibility" as defined by Obama) on Russian military forces widespread use of banned incendiary weapons in Syria. Incendiary weapons are not banned in use in combat against enemy forces, but they are banned by international law from use where civilian populations are present.
Russian forces were caught (pardon the pun) red-handed with incendiary munitions, such as RBK-500 ZAB-2.5SM incendiary bombs, deployed to Syria. The above image was taken from a video made by the English-language propaganda station RT on 18 June 2016 as Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu was visiting Hmeimim Air Base near Latakia, Syria. The video was broadcast internationally, with the above screen-captured image freaking out Russian military censors. This part of the video footage was promptly removed from subsequent airings. But that did not matter, the cat had escaped the bag. Perhaps not so amazing was that Russia denied after this video aired the first time that these incendiary weapons were deployed to Syria.
RBK-500 ZAB-2.5SM incendiary bombs are loaded with a metallic powder fuel known as thermite. Thermite burns even hotter than white phosphorus; it cannot be extinguished by any normal means and must burn itself out. This is a clear violation of the Convention of Certain Chemical Weapons (CCCW); a convention to which Russia is a signatory nation. These weapons first appeared in Syria after Russian forces first deployed to Hmeimim Air Base, they use as air-dropped incendiary munitions began shortly thereafter and it continues up to the present. They were used on a civilian populated village south of Aleppo, Umm al-Karamil, on 16 March 2017, and they appear to have been used this past weekend, probably as an act of defiance against the U.S. strike on Ash Sha'irat Air Base.
Now you know the likely scenario through which a greater level of hostilities, possibly including a clash between Russian and American forces in the Syrian war zone may well take place in the days ahead.

9 April 2017: The Russian Federation Navy has deployed into the Eastern Mediterranean Sea its most advanced class of guided missile frigate following the U.S. Navy's Tomahawk land attack missile strike on Ash Sha'irat Air Base last Thursday in Syria. Russian Federation Ship 494 Admiral Grigorovich is expected to take up station shadowing U.S. Navy guided missile destroyers (Arleigh Burke class) DDG-78 Porter and DDG-71 Ross either before or after a brief port call to the Russian replenishment facility in port Tartus, Syria. The USS Porter and USS Ross are not the only forward deployed U.S. Navy ships in the combat zone; there are two other U.S. Navy destroyers nearby, and there is without doubt a US nuclear fast attack submarine prowling nearby as well.
