Georgian troops launched a major military offensive earlier Friday to regain control of South Ossetia, prompting a furious response from Russia.
Russia has sent tanks into the region and the convoy is expected to reach the provincial capital by evening.
The fighting is the worst outbreak of hostilities since the province won de-facto independence in a war that ended in 1992 — raising fears that war could once again erupt.
A Russian military officer says that 10 Russian peacekeepers have been killed and another 30 wounded in South Ossetia.
Just like yesterday's post regarding Israel, this is yet another headline that will get classified as just another example of "wars and rumors of wars" from Mark 13:7-8 or more evidence that we should look up for the time is near.
