Syrian air defenses engaged an "enemy target" near the border with Lebanon west of Damascus overnight, state news agency SANA reported on Saturday.
"Our air defenses confronted an enemy target that penetrated airspace above the area of Deir al-Ashair in the Damascus countryside," SANA said.
SANA suggested Israel was to blame for the incursions.
"In the past few weeks, the Israeli enemy has attacked military positions," it said.
Israel has struck dozens of Iranian and Iran-backed positions in Syria over the course of the country's seven-year conflict.
A spokeswoman for the Israeli military said it did not comment on foreign reports.
Damascus last month took back control of its entire border with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and its southwest border with Jordan after an offensive which began in June.
