Mideast Syria
In this image made from amateur video released by Shaam News Network and accessed Monday, June 11, 2012, purports to show smoke leaping the air from Syrian government forces shelling in Rastan town in Homs province, Syria. Syrian troops attacked a central, rebel-held town with helicopter gunships Monday and shelled other restive areas across the nation, activists said. The aerial assault targeted the strategic river crossing town of Rastan, which has resisted repeated government offensives for months, the activists said.
