On April 17, Lebanese sources shared a video showing the moment of the alleged Israeli strike on an SUV supposedly carrying Hezbollah personnel in the Syrian town of Jdaidit Yabws on the border with Lebanon.
The video shows three men leaving the SUV ahead of the strike. The men can be seen retrieving several bags from the vehicle seconds before it explodes.
Several Arab sources claimed that the strike was carried out by an Israeli combat drone. Many of these sources said that the targeted SUV was carrying “high-ranking commanders” of Hezbollah.
Nevertheless, Hezbollah is yet to release a statement on the incident, which took place on April 15. Furthermore, the new video doesn’t confirm that the SUV was targeted by an Israeli combat drone. The explosion could have been caused by an explosive device.
On several occasions, Hezbollah vowed to respond to any attack by Israel on its fighters and commanders in Lebanon, Syria or elsewhere.
More details about Jdaidit Yabws incident will likely be revealed in the next few days. As for now, most of the available information have not been verified.
