    Israel is not responding to the reports.

    Earlier on Sunday, it was reported in Syria that an unmanned aerial vehicle operated by the Israeli Air Force opened fire on a car near Kuneitra, on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.

    According to the reports, the driver of the vehicle, who was not identified, was eliminated in the attack.

    Israel did not comment on those reports either.

    Meanwhile, Syria’s Ambassador to the UN, Bashar Al-Jaafari, on Sunday justified his country’s retaliation for Israel’s airstrikes overnight Thursday.

    The ambassador further claimed that Israel intervened in the war in Syria because of the Syrian army's progress in the fight against the Islamic State (ISIS) jihadist group.
