By Israel, are you referring to conflict with Hamas, or another external state power like Iran?
The form is probably most likely, but I wouldn’t consider that a major conflict in and of itself.

I think the chances of a major conflict right now are low, but if I had to put my money on it, I'd say Persian Gulf/Iran.

Chances of a major conflict; no doubt the middle east. Most likely Israel being targeted. However, we could see a possible conflict regarding the tariffs. If the US places a huge tariff on billions of products, then i would not be shocked if China did something against the US. Like striking/surrounding a naval group.

That would be really ballsy. If it's a carrier group, that's a strategic asset, and the consequences would be very grim.
