Thus, James Jeffrey, the special representative of the US Department of State for Syria, estimated the likelihood of a full-scale armed conflict in Syria with the participation of the United States, Russia, Turkey and Israel.

According to him, Washington rules out this kind of collision, as large players act prudently.

“At the moment, we exclude the possibility of launching large-scale military operations with the participation of such major players as the United States, Israel, Turkey and Russia in the region, as these countries behave very carefully,” the American official said.
