SYRIAN President Bashar al-Assad has warned there is a genuine threat of the conflict in his country spiralling into World War III.
...
Assad told Greek newspaper Kathimerini: “It’s definitely not a cold war – it’s something more than a cold war, less than a full-blown war.

“And I hope we don’t see any direct conflict between these superpowers, because that is where things are going to get out of control for the rest of the world.”

Assad hopes to dissuade foreign intervention on the side of his enemies in order to cling on to power in the war-torn nation.

But it is true that Syria has in recent years become a flashpoint for tensions between global superpowers and regional powers all wrestling for influence.
...
The US, Britain, France and Turkey – along with Iran’s regional rival Saudi Arabia – have all backed moderate rebel groups, pitting them against Assad’s backers.

And with the armed forces of so many countries active in the country, there have been fears for some time that they could end up clashing, sparking a full-blown world war.

Russian, American, British, French and Turkish jets have all been carrying out airstrikes in various parts of the country for several years now.
...
With tensions bubbling on all sides, the UN has called for an immediate halt to “all hostile acts” in the region to stop the conflict spiralling out of control.
