A commander of foreign-sponsored Syrian insurgents has been killed by members of his own armed group, who turned against him in the southwestern city of Dara'a.

Rabea Swaidan was fatally shot in the city, located about 114 kilometers (70 miles) south of Damascus, on Saturday by his own gunmen after they got into a bitter dispute with him over the distribution of stolen property and the money they received from abroad to fund their insurgency and other illegal activities, the SANA news agency reported.
It is said that Swaidan personally supervised the looting of houses and cars, armed robberies, abductions, and the extortion of local residents in Dara’a.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011.

Damascus says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the unrest and deadly violence while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.

The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country and accuses Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey of arming the opposition
