A great mountain
Israel will crush attacking nations:
Just like God has a spiritual New Jerusalem that docents to earth later in Revelation, satan has his own spiritual mountain Babylon. This mountain was already burning when cast down from heaven. Combine that with the symbolic meaning of fire: judgment/war it seems the satan's kingdom was cast down to earth after satan and his angels lost the war in heaven.
