Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak warned Monday against possible all-out war with Syria if both countries failed to reach a political settlement, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).

Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad rejected French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s offer to resume the indirect talks which ended after Israel launched its onslaught against Gaza Strip in December 2008.
