The mysterious airstrike a week ago by Israeli pilotless drones against a vehicle near Hader village in the northern Golan Heights remains an unexplained oddity in the simmering conflict between Hezbollah and Israel.Qantar is reportedly in charge of mobilizing Druze fighters in southern Syria, under the auspices of Hezbollah, to confront Syrian rebel factions operating in the area and to serve as an anti-Israel resistance in the Golan. He has been linked to several small-scale attacks over the past 18 months against Israeli troops along the line of separation in the Golan Heights.In January, Hezbollah killed two Israeli soldiers in an anti-tank missile attack 10 days after an Israeli drone strike in the Golan which killed Jihad Mughniyeh, a Hezbollah commander, Iranian Revolutionary Guard Gen. Mohammed Allahdadi and four other fighters.However, each action by Israel on the Golan risks a retaliation which will once again test the durability of the mutual deterrence between Israel and Hezbollah that has helped prevent the outbreak of another war for nine years.
