Does the Bible predict that the city of Damascus (in Syria)
will be destroyed in the last days?

Given the fact that Syria is probably the world capitol for terrorism, there is a very real possibility that within the next few years we could see major military action taken against it by the United States and/or Israel.  It is interesting to note that a few thousand years ago, God told us in Bible prophecies that the city of Damascus (the Syrian capital) would be destroyed.  Bible commentators differ on whether these verses refer to prophecies that have already come to pass, or if they refer to future events in the last days (or both). The verses that predict the destruction of Damascus appear below along with links to commentaries that explain what they may mean.  We encourage you to read them and draw your own conclusions.
