Israel-Iran escalation: Could Syria strikes lead to all-out war?

Could all-out war come sooner rather than later between Israel and Iran? And will that war happen in Syria? Wednesday night saw the Golan Heights' heaviest fighting since 1974. This came after air strikes on targets south of Damascus. In both cases, the direct confrontation took place between Israel and the Iranian forces which are in Syria to prop up the regime of Bashar al-Assad. Will it all escalate? Is a direct confrontation with Iran really what Donald Trump wants?
