U.N. humanitarian officials estimate that at least 120,000 people have been displaced in Syria this month because of fighting.

The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said the people fled their homes in the Aleppo, Hama and Idlib governorates between Oct. 5-22.

U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said Monday that most remain in the three governorates but some have fled to camps near the Turkish border. He said most people in Aleppo moved toward villages and towns in the countryside west of the city.

Dujarric said the displaced Syrians need tents, basic household items, food, water and sanitation services.

He said the U.N.’s humanitarian partners are scaling up their response, and distribution of cooked and ready-to-eat food has started to those displaced in the three governorates but needs to be stepped up.

    There is a huge gash opened up in Syria causing a worldwide upheaval, before the Arab Spring, Syria was a secular country allowing Christians to live peacefully in the country. Now IS is out to kill them. I’m predicting this November is going to be a historical defining time for Europe. Europe could become a powerful united country all of a sudden and I believe this will happen very soon. If at least 10 out of the 29 countries formed a new United States of Europe then it would be in the top 3 most powerful nations on earth economically and militarily.
    The numbers that I am seeing say that there have been 4 million people leave Syria, another 6 million displaced within Syria who would leave if they could with 12 million Syrians remain to survive under status-quo. Something magnanimous will soon happen in Europe, it is impossible to expect the European people to manage with 10,000 people a week from all over Africa and the middle-east to continue with no end in shight to enter the European countries.
    THE WORLD AS WE NOW KNOW IT IS ENDING RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES, much of the worlds costal populated areas are flooding like never before, The United States will be in a new hot-war with Russia in Syria possibly within weeks. Ocean Trade routs are being hijacked by China, North to Central Africa will unravel with Chaos and uncontrolled Islamic Terrorists. All the middle-east is broiling over and about to lite up with nuclear fireballs if Iran has its way.
    Russia will be making a move on Israel’s new huge oil reserve in the Golan Heights and also Israel’s natural gas field in the Mediterranian. Russia wants to keep Europe dependant on them for oil and gas and Russia along with Iran will go into Israel to take a spoil of the oil and gas.
    THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS ENDING AS WE KNOW IT; Anarchy, Violence, and Chaos will engulf this nation from coast to coast if there is not a real biblical spiritual revival.
    Come Lord Jesus, Tarry no longer.
    Maranatha!!! Maranatha!!!

      Ethin, it sounds as though things are lining up for Ezekiel 38, the Gog-Magog war against Israel where they will come to seize much plunder!

      Like you said, the United States of America is doomed for disaster, as a nation we have not only taken God out of the public square and government, but we have turned our backs and pushed Him away. America needs revival, we need to repent of our sins and put God back where He belongs!

      Just as scripture has predicted, most of the world is blind to the truth, many will be led astray and follow the beast! Each and everyday the world is becoming darker, moving further away from God Almighty.

      God bless! Maranatha!
