The Syrians, consisting mainly of tanks and jet fighters, stormed into Israel from the Golan Heights sometime prior to the Rapture. The Syrians along with several other Arab nations assisted the Russians, whose goal was the complete annihilation of Israel. However the power of God prevented this from occurring, resulting in the destruction of their invasion force.
Following the Rapture, Syria joined the United Nations successor, the Global Community, as a member of the United Holy Land States. The leader of the Global Community, Nicolae Jetty Carpathia, eventually bartered a peace deal with Israel and its Arab neighbors, including Syria.
