Syrian sources claimed Sunday that Israeli aircraft struck a vehicle on the highway to Damascus near the Golan town of Quneitra, killing the civilian driver. Social networks reported that an Israeli drone killed a member of the Syrian army’s Golan Liberation Brigades called Yasser a-Sayad. The IDF declined to comment on these reports. DEBKAfile’s military sources disclose that the victim appears to have escorted Hizballah forces in their push to the Golan – a military movement exclusively revealed first on this site on Saturday. Damascus and Hizballah have pledged in the last few days reprisal for every Israeli attack.
