An Israeli drone struck a car in a Syrian village in the Golan Heights, killing a civilian, the Syrian state news agency SANA claimed on Thursday.

An Israeli military spokeswoman declined to comment on the reported incident, which SANA said took place in the village of Hadr.

The village is located in the Syrian-controlled section of the Golan; most of the strategically-situated basaltic plateau was captured by Israel in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed.

Other unconfirmed reports from Syria identified the individual who was killed as Imad Tawil, a local Hezbollah commander.
