BEIRUT — The head of the Syrian opposition's High Negotiations Committee, Riad Hijab, resigned on Monday after a nearly two-year term.

A statement from Hijab did not say why he was quitting the Saudi-backed HNC, the main anti-government umbrella bloc, which includes political and armed groups and has represented the opposition in peace talks.
