Syrian media reported on Sunday that an Israeli drone had struck a car in the Quneitra countryside, killing the driver named as Yasser al-Sayed. There were conflicting reports about the identity of the man killed, with some labeling him a "terrorist" and others describing him as a civilian.

Hours earlier,  Syrian regime reports said that forces loyal to President Bashar Assad had “repelled” an Israeli reconnaissance drone near the town of Khan Arnaba, close to where the alleged strike occurred.

According to a report by the Al-Marsad - Arab Human Rights Center in Golan Heights group, witnesses reported that the alleged Israeli strike targeted a vehicle, killing the driver and leaving the car charred.

Hezbollah meanwhile posted pictures of Syrian air defenses, including the kind fired at Israeli jets on Friday morning.
