An Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle has struck a car carrying members of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement on the Syrian side of the border with Lebanon, but there have been no reports of casualties.

Lebanon’s state-run National News Agency reported that the aircraft targeted the SUV near al-Haidari Stores in Jdeidat Yabous village, which is situated 45 kilometers west of the Syrian capital Damascus and across from Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, on Wednesday.

The report added that the airstrike damaged the car but did not result in any casualties.

An unnamed Lebanese security source told Lebanon’s English-language The Daily Star newspaper that the Israeli drone’s initial attempt to destroy the car failed, allowing the vehicle to stop by the side of the road and its four passengers to escape before a second rocket hit and destroyed it.

Some media reports, meanwhile, said the strike sought to assassinate a Hezbollah commander.

Earlier this month, a senior Hezbollah commander in southern Lebanon was killed apparently by agents working for Israel’s Mossad spy organization.

Ali Mohammed Younes of the southern Lebanese village of Jebchit was pulled from his car, stabbed and shot on a road near Nabatieh.

Younes was reportedly in charge of operations to locate spies for and collaborators with the Israeli regime.

On April 10, the Israeli army threatened to strike Hezbollah positions in Syria.

The military posted grainy footage on its Twitter page, which purportedly showed the head of the Syrian Armed Forces 1st Corps, Luau Ali Ahmad Assad, “visiting Hezbollah positions in Syria.”

The text accompanying the footage on the Israeli post read, “See the man with white hair? That's the head of the Syrian Armed Forces 1st Corps, Luau Ali Ahmad Assad. He's visiting Hezbollah positions in #Syria.”

“Our message: We see you. Consider this a warning,” the caption further read. “We won't allow Hezbollah to entrench itself militarily in Syria.”
