It sounds like things are heating up in Syria with troops defecting:

"As Syrian army defectors begin launching attacks on government forces, Syria's largely peaceful rebellion appears in danger of descending into a sectarian civil war with wider regional consequences."

"This has a lot of worrying regional implications, particularly if it leads to Syria moving toward becoming a failed state," said Stephen Heydemann

Some believe that the defecting can and will lead to Civil War, while others say that it is unlikely and still to early to predict what will happen.

Unless there are 1000's of soldiers defecting, or a few high ranking officials defecting in public, then the odd few won't make a bit of different's, and Russia and Iran can't and won't let a civil war ensue.
