The head of the Syrian branch of Al Qaeda has offered more than $3 million for the assassination of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

In an audio recording released Monday night, Abu Mohamed al Jolani said he would pay “3 million euros” ($3.4 million) to whoever kills Bashar al-Assad and ends his story.

“How long will the blood of Muslims be shed by a man who loves his power? How long will Muslims have to wait to get their rights back?” asked the al-Nosra Front chief.

The jihadist leader said he would even pay this reward to a member of the Asad family who decides to kill him, assuring that the Al Nosra group would protect the killer and his family.
