The situation in Syria, and in the Persian Gulf region, is threatening to spiral into a regional and possibly even a global conflict.

Shahir jan thanx for another timely contribution.
De-confliction seems to be the operative word here, and alas it doesn't seem to be in such direction.
But there's still hope, and as always, other possibilities.

Thanks for your comment. My greatest worry is the direct involvement of Israel in the Syrian war. According to the IDF, on June 26, the Israeli Air Force attacked the Syrian government forces’ artillery positions after 10 projectiles fell on the Israeli-controlled part of the Golan Heights. While no independent body has yet confirmed the validity of Israel’s claim it is worth noting that the incident occurred one day after Benjamin Netanyahu stressed that Israel will not allow Iran to establish a permanent presences on the Golan. Whether the move will provoke a response from Assad's supporters, allowing Israel to open an Eastern front against Assad remains to be seen.
