The very loud noise of Israeli drones was recently heard above Lebanon. Some days after the noise was heard, it was reported by the National News Agency that the Israeli drone fired a missile at a Cherokee Jeep located in Jdeidat Yabous, a town on the Lebanese Syrian border.

In a statement, the Lebanese Foreign Minister Nasif Hitti condemned the attack on a Lebanese civilian vehicle and called for Lebanon to submit a complaint with the Security Council about this violation.

According to the Middle East Monitor, the two missiles fired were an assassination attempt targeting members of the Hezbollah political party, which Israeli claimed responsibility for calling them “legitimate targets.”

The first missile missed, giving the four men who were in the car time to escape. There were no human casualties, only material.

According to Naharnet, “The drone attack came a week after ’s military released a video it said shows Syrian officers and Hizbullah members working together on the edge of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. has warned for years of what it calls Iran and Hizbullah’s “entrenchment” in southern Syria close to Israeli army positions.”

As of the time of writing, it is still unconfirmed whether Lebanon will file a complaint with the Security Council as called for by Minister Hitti.
