    Syrian forces bombarded the city of Homs early on Monday, killing 60
    people in a wave of attacks across several districts, An activist said
    forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad were using multiple rocket
    launchers in the attack. Arab satellite television stations broadcast
    live footage from Homs where explosions could be heard and smoke could
    be seen rising from some buildings. Activists said more than 200
    people were killed on Friday night when tanks and artillery blasted a
    neighborhood of Homs, a turbulent city that has become a centre of
    resistance to Assad's rule. A top member of the National Syrian
    Council said that a top Iranian military official, Kassam Salimani,
    commander of the Quds Force, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard special
    forces unit is actively aiding the regime and has taken up a spot in
    the war room which manages army maneuvers against opposition forces in

    IAF: Iran top concern

    The escalating public discourse over the possibility of a strike on
    Iran's nuclear facilities has put a magnifying glass on incoming IAF
    Chief Major-General Amir Eshel's stance on the issue. In a rare speech
    made by Eshel last month at the Jerusalem Center for Public affairs,
    Eshel stressed that while the decision to launch an airstrike on the
    Islamic Republic is left up to the political echelon, Iran is Israel's
    primary concern. Eshel raised the concern that a nuclear Iran could
    embolden terror groups that operate with the Islamic Republic's
    backing, including Hamas and Hezbollah -- a development that would
    restrict the IDF in Gaza and Lebanon.

    Israel recruiting gay envoys

    Israel is recruiting gays and lesbians as unofficial envoys. In a bid
    to boost its international image, the country's Ministry of Public
    Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs has established a framework of diverse
    volunteers who speak about Israel around the world. The ministry is
    encouraging minorities and members of the gay community to step
    forward. Ministry spokesman Gal Ilan said the goal was to highlight
    Israel's diversity. Israel has recently been promoting itself as a gay
    friendly oasis in an intolerant Middle East.
