Happening Now: Saudis Intercept More Explosive Drones Fired by Houthis

February and March have been filled with news of attempted drone strikes by Iranian-backed Houthis on Saudi Arabian targets. Most action of this sort originates in Iranian-controlled areas of Yemen. A short time ago, the Saudis intercepted at least one other explosive-laden drone fired into sovereign Saudi territory.

Why is this significant? Because Saudi Arabia, the mother of Islam and the seat of Sunni Muslim dominance, is an enemy of Iran, the seat of Shi’ite Muslim dominance. The two have been bitter rivals for centuries, but things have definitely taken a turn since the Saudis began cooperating with Israel.

Take a look at the map below to see the lay of the land, and whose influence dominates what regions, and you will find battle lines being drawn between Sunni and Shia.

Pray for wisdom of world leaders, particularly those immediately engaged in ongoing conflict with demonic forces disguised as rogue Iranian militants.

Take heart, believers, we know how the story ends!

But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.

~Luke 21:28
