An Iranian drone flies into Israeli airspace from Syria. It is shot down by an Israeli aircraft. Then an Israeli aircraft is shot down by forces backing the Assad regime. The Israelis launch attacks on 12 mainly Iranian targets around Damascus. The Russians say this poses an unacceptable threat to their soldiers. And it all happens on one morning. Textbook escalation. Where will it end?
