CAIRO - The head of the Syrian National Coalition Moaz Alkhatib resigned on Sunday, saying in a statement he had taken the step so he could work with more freedom.

"I had promised the great Syrian people and promised God that I would resign if matters reached some red lines," he said in a statement posted on his official Facebook page. He did not explain what had prompted his resignation.

"Now I am fulfilling my promise and announcing my resignation from the National Coalition in order to be able to work with freedom that cannot be available within the official institutions," he said.

A spokesman for Alkhatib confirmed his resignation.
