According to BBC defence and diplomatic correspondent Jonathan Marcus, no.
While some have described the killing of Soleimani as "a declaration of war" by the United States against Iran, it is important both not to overstate nor to understate the significance of the moment.
This will not prompt World War Three. The key actors who might be involved in such a conflict, for example Russia and China, are not significant players in this drama.
But this could become a defining moment for the Middle East and for Washington's role in it. A significant Iranian retaliation is to be expected, and this could lead to a cycle of action and reaction that could bring the two countries ever closer to an all-out conflict.
Iran's response might be against US military interests in the region but equally it could be against any US-related target that Iran thinks vulnerable. BBC
