Pres. Assad said the [flotilla] raid had destroyed any chance for peace in the near future

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said Israel’s attack on the Gaza aid flotilla has increased the chances of war in the Middle East.

In an interview with BBC Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen, he said Syria was working to prevent a regional war.

But he added that there was no chance of a peace deal with the current Israeli administration, which he called a “pyromaniac government”.
