Arab media reported on Wednesday that the Israeli Air Force struck a target in Syria, killing at least two people.

According to a report on the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Mayadeen news portal, an Israeli air force jet struck a car in the countryside of Quneitra in the Syrian Golan Heights, killing three people.

Al-Manar, another Hezbollah-linked news portal, reported that it was an Israeli drone that had struck the vehicle, killing two members of a pro-Assad militia.

According to the Al-Manar report, the attack struck the car on the outskirts of the village of Hader, a Druse area at the frontier with the Israeli Golan Heights.

The IDF neither confirmed nor denied that it carried out the strike, stating that it does not respond to foreign reports.

Foreign media reports have attributed a number of air strikes in Syrian territory to Israel over the course of the four-year Syrian civil war.

In January, an alleged Israeli drone strike in southern Syria left six Hezbollah operatives and six Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps personnel dead — including an Iranian senior general and the son of the late external operations chief for Hezbollah.
