• In fact, according to one expert, the regime feels confident solely because of its nuclear weapons program, which it sees as the one guarantor of its stability. [Haaretz]

• The regional U.S. undersecretary of State called the fall of the Assad regime “inevitable.” [JPost]

• UNESCO formally complained over a cartoon in (of all places) Haaretz that showed Prime Minister Netanyahu ordering soldiers to bomb UNESCO. God it’s called satire. [Haaretz]
