Syrian air defences repelled an Israeli raid on a military base in the centre of the country on Saturday, hitting more than one warplane, state media said.
The report came after the Israeli military said one of its fighter jets had crashed during strikes against "Iranian targets" in Syria after intercepting a drone.
"At dawn, the Zionist enemy carried out a new aggression against one of our military bases in the centre of the country," Syrian state news agency SANA reported.
"Our air defences repelled it and hit more than one plane."
Israel has carried out dozens of air strikes on the Syrian armed forces and their allies since the civil war broke out in 2011.
Iran with Russia is the main military backer of the Damascus government.
Israel has largely confined its operations to targeting Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shia militant group that is a key ally of Iran.
