Yes,i am worried.
Syrian government is on the roll, pushing rebels on all fronts because they got help on the ground (unofficially from Hezbollah/Iran) and political
backing from Russia. They certainly do not want to loose,Iran can't let them loose - it invested too much and fears it will be next,Russia wants to
prove that its political influence means something and does not want to loose.
Rebels had help on the ground from foreign volunteers,Hamas and other organisations and political backing from the West but it is not enough now. They
certainly do not want to loose but they are loosing and West will not allow that.
So it can go 2 ways:
Assad and rebels can agree on some sort of political compromise - which is unlikely at this point, in my opinion.
Maybe later, when some sort of draw between the sides is reached.
Or stakes will be raised higher and higher and rebels will get much bigger and direct help to turn the tide followed by bigger help to Assad and so
on. In this case the situation will escalate and involve other countries in the region. For an example i can see how Assad ,with back to the wall,
orders rocket strikes on Israel. To show that he fights eeeevil Zionists and to gain support from general population of Sunni states,creating pressure
on their governments. Israel will not let it slip and it could develop into bigger conflict involving Iran very easily.
It does not have to be this way and it is certainly not a doomsday scenario, USA/NATO and especially still relatively weak Russia will not push it to
direct confrontation but i am worried nevertheless.
