Remnants of the car from the alleged Israeli attack on Syrian side of the Golan Heights

In a newsflash, state television quoted a military source as saying Israeli planes had at 3:15 p.m. (1215 GMT) struck a base belonging to the Damascus-based Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC), a faction that backs President Bashar Assad.

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.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights the first alleged Israeli attack struck a vehicle in the Syrian Golan Heights and targeted members of Hezbollah and the People’s Committees, a pro-Assad militia led by Lebanese Druse terrorist Samir Kuntar.

According to the Observatory report, five people were killed in the strike, two of whom were from Hezbollah and three of whom were from the People’s Committees.

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.
