    Sky News Arabia reported the targeted vehicle was carrying a commander belonging to the Lebanese terror group.
    Pictures from the scene of the attack showed the remains of the burned down vehicle covered by a doormat. This method of covering tacks is widely used by Hezbollah fighters in order to avoid being detected by spy drones.

    Hezbollah has not commented on the incident.
    In the meantime, on Tuesday evening an Iranian military plane was detected flying over Iraq on its way to Tehran. The plane’s altitude and trajectory would indicate it was coming back from Damascus.
