And that's not all. Today Benny Gantz stunned Israelis by abandoning the Blue and White party to join Benjamin Netanyahu and Likud in forming a unity coalition and immediately thereafter forming an "emergency" unity government for the State of Israel. Upon establishment of the "emergency" unity government. Gantz immediately took his initial position as Speaker of the Knesset; he will eventually fill the role of Israel's Foreign Minister. Netanyahu will retain his position as Prime Minister until September 2021 at which time Gantz will assume the premiership of Israel. In analysis, it seems obvious that the need for Israel to establish an "emergency" unity government is related to some external, existential threat requirement. An external existential requirement such as to preempt the Iranian nuclear weapons programs would appear to fit the current situation, as well as the aforemention military activities.
28 March 2020: Once again Eschatology Today's advanced sourcing has proven accurate as seen in news reports such as was published today in the Jerusalem Post. The report, published just over one hours ago, bears the headline "Iran and US preparing for new round of conflict in Iraq."
As noted in the original entry for this SITREP, "hostilities against Iran" means within the territory of Iran. Other indications strongly suggest the US may also intend to annihilate the IRGC-QF PMF/PMU militias known as Hashd al-Shaabi; with Katai'b Hezbollah being a principle entity, and which operates in both Iraq and Syria. It's Syria base was recently annihilated through intensive strikes from F-35 stealth aircraft. More OSINT details are to be found in the linked JPost article.

2 April 2020: Continuing where comments left off early this morning with the multiple-sources confirmation of the IAF strike on Syria's Ash-Sha'irat Air Base. It is the second such strike on this base in recent weeks. It is also where the U.S. struck almost three years ago to the day when President Trump retaliated after the Syrian chemical weapons attack on Khan Sheikhoun that originated from this air base. Khan Sheikhoun is located in the southern part of Idlib Province. For those in need of a refresher, pay a visit HERE.
So, beside the obvious chemical weapons aspect, why is Israel repeatedly striking this particular air base; what actionable intelligence does Israel have? By many accounts Israel is convinced that Syria retains a considerable CW capability, one that could prove far more deadly to far more Israelis than nCoV-2019 does. This is a CW capability that was not fully destroyed under international guarantee. No surprise here.
The particular CW holding Israel's rapt attention is the neurotoxin VX, the most potent chemical weapon on earth. It is this type of weapon when used against Israel's cities that would almost certainly result in Damascus' transformation to a heap of ruins. So, we could say that the IAF is unknowingly doing its level best to preempt the fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49:23-27. Obviously, these prophecies will be fulfilled, and Ash-Sha'irat Air Base is a likely source for that soon to arrive "day of disease and incurable pain." (Is. 17:11b NKJV)
Yesterday, President Trump once again repeated his oft-repeated warning to the Iranian regime about the resulting repercussions an attack against U.S. troops will precipitate. Paraphrase, the President said, 'We don't want conflict, so Iran should not do what (we know) they are planning to do.' Eventually the apocalyptic Twelver regime in Tehran and Qom will act stupidly, and that, as the saying goes, will be that.
11 April 2020: The image ISI released which shows the damage done to Sha'irat Air Base runways and navigation systems, as well as "repair activity."
UPDATE 22 April 2020: In the past week or so Iranian naval gunboats have routinely and dangerously harassed U.S. Navy ships in the Gulf. The Iranian's have ignored all U.S. ships warnings to stand-off and stand-down from these types of harassing and aggressive actions.
A little over two hours ago President Trump relayed an order to the U.S. Navy 5th Fleet:
"I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea."
