Iranian media released footage of two missiles hitting a civilian vehicle in Jdeideh Yabous, near the Syrian-Lebanese border.

On Wednesday, an Israeli drone first struck near the car transporting Hezbollah members. The passengers got out before it was then directly hit in a second strike, a source close to Hezbollah said.

According to Haaretz, the strike targeted Hezbollah commanders.

Military correspondent Yossi Yehoshua told Yedioth Ahronoth that “carrying out an attack on a car on the Syrian-Lebanese border within a short time amid the coronavirus restrictions is an unusual challenge.”

The newspaper said that it did not know whether there was a connection between the bombing and another news that Israeli radars spotted an Iranian military plane flying over the airspace of Iraq, returning to Tehran.

Maariv newspaper recalled a warning made by Israeli army spokesman Avijaa Adraei, which included a video showing Syrian General Ali Asaad accompanied by a Hezbollah commander in the Golan Heights.
