AMMAN - The Syrian opposition delegation in Geneva may walk out of peace talks if the government and its allies continue to escalate a bombing campaign in rebel-held areas and hamper delivery of humanitarian aid to besieged areas, the coordinator of the body said on Sunday.

Riad Hijab said in a statement online that without UN and international pressure to force the Syrian government to end these "violations" there would be no justification for the main Saudi backed opposition group to remain in Geneva.
