In the last week Iran sent a drone into Israel which prompted Israeli airstrikes on both Hezbollah and Iranian positions in Syria resulting in Iranian deaths and the downing of an Israeli F-16 and Syrian forces with Russian merc's embedded moved on oil fields controlled by Syrian opposition with US forces embedded. US 'coalition' responded with air strikes that took out a lot of Russian merc's and Syrian forces. Israel claims it eliminated Syrian air defense positions so they should have an easier time inflicting damage at will if Iran didn't get the message the first time. Right now it appears that both Iran and Russia have pulled back and said they want no part of that fight but it seems that this regional conflict may get much bigger if Iran continues to try and establish permanent residence in Syria and Assad continues to violate the cessation of hostilities that he agreed to. Elsewhere in Syria, Assad forces cleared a path for Isis to move out of a pinch and into area controlled by Syrian opposition so the opposition would have to fight Isis while Assad waited to clean up the scraps. All while that POS Erdogan is squeezing the Kurds in Syria and the chump hangs them out to dry. The Brits really screwed up when they didn't create an independent Kurdistan when they carved up that desert.
