BEIRUT: A leading Syrian rebel commander announced his resignation Sunday, in the wake of battlefield setbacks and infighting among rebel groups.

Col. Abdel-Jabbar Ukaidi, the head of the Aleppo Revolutionary Military Council of the mainstream Free Syrian Army, also had harsh words for the international community and the Syrian opposition-in-exile for failing to offer sufficient support for the uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad.
