Gaza events and the Book of Zacharia

וְעָבַר בַּיָּם צָרָה, וְהִכָּה בַיָּם גַּלִּים, וְהֹבִישׁוּ, כֹּל מְצוּלוֹת יְאֹר; וְהוּרַד גְּאוֹן אַשּׁוּר, וְשֵׁבֶט מִצְרַיִם יָסוּר.

And over the sea affliction shall pass, and the waves shall be smitten in the sea, and all the depths of the Nile shall dry up; and the pride of Assyria shall be brought down, and the sceptre of Egypt shall depart away. (Zecharia 10:11)

תֵּרֶא אַשְׁקְלוֹן וְתִירָא, וְעַזָּה וְתָחִיל מְאֹד, וְעֶקְרוֹן, כִּי-הֹבִישׁ מֶבָּטָהּ; וְאָבַד מֶלֶךְ מֵעַזָּה, וְאַשְׁקְלוֹן לֹא תֵשֵׁב.

Ashkelon shall see it, and fear, Gaza also, and shall be sore pained, and Ekron, for her expectation shall be ashamed; and the king shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited. (Zecharia 9:5)

וְהָיָה, בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא; אֲבַקֵּשׁ, לְהַשְׁמִיד אֶת-כָּל-הַגּוֹיִם, הַבָּאִים, עַל-יְרוּשָׁלִָם

And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
