Dr Borck, a Senior Research Fellow in Middle East Security at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), told Express.co.uk: “I think we should worry about it. I don't think it is an immediate risk. There are quite a lot of obstacles underway before we get there but this is an escalation spiral. There's a balance between being alarmist on the one hand, and making sure we think about that risk. It is a possibility and it's certainly a greater possibility today than it was, let's say, 10 days ago.”
