Istanbul: A commander of a Syrian rebel group fighting the regime of President Bashar al-Assad was killed Wednesday in a car bomb attack in southern Turkey, local officials said.

Jamil Raadoun died of his wounds in hospital after the car bomb detonated outside his home in the city of Antakya in the southern Hatay region, the region`s governor Ercan Topaca told the state-run Anatolia news agency.

Raadoun, who had defected from the Syrian Army, was leading a medium-sized non-Islamist rebel unit called the Suqur al-Ghab brigades that has been fighting in the Al-Ghab plain in northwestern Syria.

Topaca was quoted as saying by Anatolia that the attack could have been the result of a dispute between rival rebel groups.
