Riyadh: A Saudi Arabia scholar has reportedly offered a USD 450,000 reward for killing Syrian President Bashar Al Assad.
“We announce a reward of USD 450,000 for whoever kills the assassin Bashar Al Assad, whose massacres of women and children have horrified the world,” Ali Al Rabieei said on his Twitter account.
According to The Gulf News, Rabieei announced the reward after videos on on Saturday showed rows of dead Syrian children lying in a mosque with gaping wounds.
The recent massacre in Houla killed over 100 people, including at least 32 children under the age of 10, and left injured 300.
Meanwhile, Assad’s regime has strongly rejected the allegations that its forces were involved in the shelling.
