A threat made by one of the representatives of the Riyadh-formed Syrian opposition to kill President Bashar Assad is unacceptable, head of Damascus delegation to Geneva talks on the Syrian settlement Bashar Jaafari told Sputnik on Wednesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A threat made by one of the representatives of the Riyadh-formed Syrian opposition to kill President Bashar Assad violates a number of UN Security Council resolutions, head of Damascus delegation to Geneva talks on the Syrian settlement Bashar Jaafari told Sputnik on Wednesday.

"Yesterday, the person who represents Jaysh al-Islam made an irresponsible statement in which he threatened to kill the president of Syria. He was inciting to commit a terrorist act. This is a violation of the SC resolution 2253, 2299, 2278, 1989, 1924," Jaafari said.

On Tuesday, Mohammed Alloush, a member of Jaysh al-Islam, which is part of the High Negotiations Committee (HNC) opposition group, made a statement in which he threatened to kill the Syrian leader.
