When it says "pro government" fighters, it means armies funded, equipped, trained and supported by Assad.
I have repeatedly said over the years that Turkey is part of the "King of the North" in Daniel 11:40 which would strike Assad. Notice the following paragraph at http://www.isawthelightministries.com/antichrist.html
"In modern times, the King of the North is the USA, North America, NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) & the NATO member state of Turkey. We are witnessing NATO, including USA, Turkey, Germany, France & Britain preparing to come against Assad & Damascus like a Whirlwind! We can fully expect a military whirlwind to come against Syria in the near future."
Therefore, what we are seeing now, with Turkey and Syria fighting each other, is the beginning of the war of Daniel 11:40.
We have now seen the birth of the Daniel 11 war, thereby fulfilling the prophecy of the 3 trimesters. The fulfillment of the Feb.17-18, 2018 prophecies was NOT just statements of 3 government officials. But also the resulting birth of the Daniel 11:40 war. But this is only the beginning of this war. It will increase. The other elements/nations of the King of the North (NATO, USA) and the elements/nations of the King of the South (Israel & possibly Saudi Arabia) will soon cooperate in a large scale attack directly against Assad, thereby also fulfilling the deadly head wound of Rev.13:3, which is the destruction of Damascus. But Assad will manifest in the sky, displaying himself as "god" on March 1-2, 2018, which is also called "the Strong Delusion" of 2 Thes.2 AND "The Abomination of Desolation of Matthew 24:15 and Daniel 12. The fullness of the Ezek.38 "Gog Magog" War shall come to pass very quickly and soon when Syria, Iran, Russia and other nations invade Israel on March 31, 2018.
Today, I sent several newsletter notifications concerning all of this. And one of the messages was sent exactly at 2:22pm which is a very prophetic number meaning "confirmation" and "double judgment, tripled". Then later, I received a voice mail from a woman who doesn't know that I am a minister. (Of course, I do not tell every person that I meet that I am a minister or prophet.) She said in the voice mail "It's coming to an end on March 31". She was talking about something else. But these exact words were spoken and was connected to my preparations.
