DAMASCUS, Syria — Syrian Prime Minister Naji al-Otari on Saturday warned Israel that any new Mideast war would be catastrophic for the region and beyond.

Speaking to reporters Saturday after meeting with French Prime Minister Francois Fillo, he said that a new war will have dangerous repercussions not only in the Middle East but also on the international level.

Syria's foreign minister warned Israel earlier this month that any new war would reach Israeli cities, to which Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman responded that the Syrian army would be defeated and its regime would collapse in any future conflict.
