Proxy War

On a global scale, this conflict has been considered a proxy war between several nations, particularly Iran and the U.S., between Iran and its Sunni Arab rivals in Syria and possibly between Russia and the U.S., reported CNN’s Kyle Almond. He also noted the chances of the conflict devolving into a “bloody, sectarian battle” as Iraq once did, given the clashing religious groups of the government and the majority of Syria.
