Perilous, Dangerous Times: Great upheaval of humans. Mass migrations, refugees, homelessness due to war, famine, pestilence, natural disasters, political persecution, ethnic persecution, religious persecution, economic conflict. The time will be exceedingly ‘dangerous’ for migrant/refugee women baring young children, who have little to no access to food, shelter, medicine, water or protection. It will be so perilous that those women who don’t have babies or young children will be considered ‘lucky.’
2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
Matthew 24:19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
Luke 23:29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
Turkey Removed More Than 6,000 (6) Syrian Refugees from Istanbul. Relations between locals and some 500,000 (5) Syrian refugees in the city have soured. Turkey hosts more than 3.6 (6×6) million Syrians, the largest population of Syrian refugees displaced by its civil war.

Turkey has sent more than 6,000 Syrian migrants in Istanbul to temporary housing centres in other provinces since early July, the local governor’s office said on Friday, two weeks after a deadline for Syrians not registered in the city to leave.
Authorities had given Syrians not registered in Istanbul until October 30 to move to another province or face forced removal from the city.
Turkey hosts more than 3.6 (6×6) million Syrians, the largest population of Syrians displaced by an eight-year civil war. The number of Syrians in Istanbul, a city of some 15 (5+5+5) million, has swelled to more than 500,000 (5).
The Istanbul governor’s office said over 6,000 (6) unregistered Syrians were removed from Istanbul since July 12.
Sentiment towards Syrian refugees in Turkey has soured in recent years. Ankara wants to settle part of them in a swathe of land it now controls in northeast Syria, after it launched an offensive last month against the Kurdish YPG militia.
Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch last month published reports saying Turkey is forcibly sending Syrian refugees to northern Syria. Turkey’s Foreign Ministry called the claims in the reports “false and imaginary.”
The governor’s office also said it had sent over 42,000 illegal migrants to provinces that have repatriation centres, adding that their deportation process is continuing in those centres.
