An Israeli aircraft reportedly launched a strike into Syria on Sunday that left one person dead, in what appeared to be the second cross-border attack in three days.
Orient News correspondent said the Israeli airstrike targeted a car travelling on a road between Damascus and Quneitra, a town in the Golan Heights near the border with Israel. An Israeli army spokesman declined to comment on the report.
Al Mayadeen TV said the attack killed Yasser Hussein Asayeed, whom it described as a terrorist of a militia aligned with the Assad regime. It said he was based in Golan.
Just two days earlier, Syrian activists said immediately after Assad terrorists shot a few surface-to-air missiles at Israeli jets that were carrying out an attack in Syria against what Israel said was a weapons shipment bound for the terrorist Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah that they were only show missiles to prove the state of hostility and enmity between Assad regime and Israel.
Israel fired its Arrow interceptor missile to knock down one of the surface-to-air rockets headed for its territory, forcing the nation’s army to issue a rare confirmation that it had carried out an attack inside Syria.
It marked the first time Israel had used the Arrow missile, which has been jointly developed with the US over years to ’defend’ against long-range missiles from Iran.
